A PROBE into the death of Fiona Anderson and her three children has taken a new twist as police revealed details of a “stabbing incident” hours before she died.

Miss Anderson, 23, is thought to have fallen to her death from Battery Green multi-storey car park in Lowestoft, consistent with post-mortem results.

But in a new development, police revealed they attended an address in London Road South, where she lived, hours before her death.

Det Supt John Brocklebank, of the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Incident Team, said officers were first called to a “stabbing incident” in Mill Road at 8pm on Sunday.

They found reports that a man had been stabbed were false, but in the “early hours” of Monday morning attended an address in London Road South.
