Great Yarmouth: Arrests made over ‘cold case’ murder

GREAT YARMOUTH: Detectives investigating the murder of a 22-year-old woman 30 years ago have arrested a man in Great Yarmouth.

Sally McGrath, was found dead in woods near Peterborough in March 1980 after vanishing in July 1979.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said the 53-year-old was arrested on suspicion of murder in the Norfolk town on Friday afternoon and taken to Cambridgeshire for questioning.

The development follows the arrest of a 58-year-old man in Hampshire on Tuesday morning.

Officers recently reopened the case as part of cold case review into the killing of Miss McGrath and a series of rapes and attempted rapes in and around Peterborough in the 1970s.
