SUFFOLK strangler Steve Wright's leave to appeal hearing will take place at the High Court in London on February 24.

Wright, 50, of London Road, Ipswich, was convicted at Ipswich Crown Court last year for the murders of Tania Nicol, Gemma Adams, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls. The five sex workers were killed and their bodies dumped at sites in the Hintlesham and Nacton areas between the end of October and the beginning of December 2006.

A spokesman for the Suffolk Crown Prosecution Service today said: “We have been informed that Steve Wright's application for leave to appeal will be heard on February 24.”

The Royal Courts of Justice in London also confirmed the date and said the hearing would take place before three High Court judges.

Should Wright, who has always denied murdering the women, be successful in his application, he will be granted an appeal hearing where he will be able to challenge his conviction.
