IPSWICH railway station was awash with police today as officers investigating the murders of five prostitutes appealed for information from passengers.

IPSWICH railway station was awash with police today as officers investigating the murders of five prostitutes appealed for information from passengers.

Exactly a fortnight after Anneli Alderton was last seen, officers boarded trains travelling between Manningtree and Ipswich to urge passengers to give any information they have about the last movements of the murdered 24-year-old.

Passengers were shown photographs of Miss Alderton and the four other murdered women, Tania Nicol, Gemma Adams, Annette Nicholls and Paula Clennell.

Other officers spoke to passengers as they disembarked at Ipswich station.

The appeals came after police revealed they had confirmed that Miss Alderton, the third victim of the man dubbed the Suffolk Strangler, got off the Harwich to Colchester train at Manningtree station at 6.15pm on Sunday, December 3 before catching the 6.43pm train to Ipswich.
