POLICE investigating the murders of three Suffolk prostitutes have confirmed they have found a fourth and fifth body - raising fears that missing Annette Nicholls and Paula Clennell have been killed.

POLICE investigating the murders of three Suffolk prostitutes have confirmed they have found two more bodies.

The grisly discoveries were made in the village of Levington, near Ipswich, after police received a call at about 3pm today.

A passer-by spotted a body near the Old Felixstowe Road and contacted police. Officers discovered the body and shortly afterwards an officer in the force's helicopter, which was sent to the scene, spotted another body nearby.

Police said they could only assume the two bodies were that of missing prostitutes Paula Chennell, 24, and Annette Nicholls, 29.

They said the first body was just 20ft from the road and the second was found a few hundred yards away.

The find of the two bodies is less than a mile from the spot where the naked body of Anneli Alderton, 24, was found in woodland at Nacton on Sunday.
