ITV News understands that Wiltshire Police are searching the garden of murderer Christopher Halliwell's former home in Swindon.

Two properties, believed to be on the same street, are being searched.

The operation is expected to last a couple of days.

Police say it's intelligence led, based on new information, and they emphasise they are not sure if they'll find anything.

Police have never searched the exterior of the property before and say that the search is unrelated to the current owners.

Specialist officers are currently carrying out excavation work within the gardens of two properties within Broad Street as part of an ongoing investigation being carried out by the Brunel Major Crime Investigation Team. This relates to intelligence that the force has received. We are unable to comment further at this time."

Halliwell, a Swindon taxi driver, was jailed for a whole life term, after being found guilty of murdering Becky Godden.
