The items were found at the refuse centre in Great Blakenham on Wednesday .

A source told The Star that the specialist machinery on site was temporarily shut down upon discovery of the shoe and bag in a blue recycling bin and police were then called.

Every blue bin in the Babergh district, where the bodies of Miss Adams, 25, and Tania Nicol, 19, were found, is taken to Great Blakenham.

The source said: “On Wednesday, more than one item was found while the contents of these bins were being sorted, which matched the items of clothing which the police are looking for in relation to the murder of Gemma Adams.”

The bodies of Miss Adams and Miss Nicol were discovered in the same brook - Miss Adams was found at Hintlesham and Miss Nicol at Copdock Mill.
