Police officer's killer found hanged

The killer of Heather Cooper, a detective from York, has been found hanged in his prison cell.

Thirty six year old Peter Foster, who was also a police officer, was jailed for life after stabbing Heather to death and dumping her body in woods in West Sussex last October.

It's understood that he was on suicide watch in Lewes prison and the independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman is now investigating.
