Police search of double murderer's former home extended

The search at a former home of double murderer Christopher Halliwell is to be extended into next week.

The operation at 96 Broad Street in Swindon began on Monday and was expected to last for five days.

Work at the site will pause for the weekend on Friday, and we will reconvene and commence searching once again on Monday next week.

– DCI Jeremy Carter, Wiltshire Police

Police say the search is 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.
