Police warn party goers

Det Ch Supt Stewart Gull said any women out on their own could be at risk from the killer - he advised the public to take extra precautions over the Christmas and New Year period.

All women out on their own could be at risk, the policeman in charge of the inquiry into Ipswich's triple murder said today.

Det Ch Supt Stewart Gull said any women out on their own could be at risk from the killer and the public to take extra precautions over the Christmas and New Year period.

Appealing for single women to be vigilant, DCS Gull said: “Clearly we are coming up to Christmas and the New Year.

“People will naturally be going out for office parties and celebrating with family and friends.

“I would give the same advice as we would at any time of year - do not go out alone, go out in company, make sure you know where you are going and if possible give someone a contact number.

“Any single woman could potentially be in danger and that is why they need to take simple precautionary measures.
