David Fuller: Calls for public inquiry following killer's abuse in morgues

There are calls for a public inquiry after a man admitted he murdered two women in Kent 30 years ago, and abused at least 100 female corpses.

David Fuller, 67, admitted the murders of Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, in two separate attacks in Tunbridge Wells in 1987.

Fuller also filmed himself carrying out attacks at mortuaries inside the now-closed Kent and Sussex Hospital and the Tunbridge Wells Hospital, in Pembury, where he worked in electrical maintenance roles since 1989.

The MP for Tunbridge Wells Greg Clark is among MPs who want to ensure such offending is never committed again.

In a video on Twitter he said: "The families of Fuller's victims deserve to know two things. First, how this could have possibly happened. And second, that is can never, ever happen again."

The NHS has asked all health trusts to now review mortuary access and post-mortem activities.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the Government is working closely with the local police and health trust to ensure the families affected are supported.

After Fuller pleaded guilty to the murders at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday, Mr Javid said: "My thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims of these horrific acts, as well as all those working in the NHS Trust and wider health service who, like me, will be profoundly shaken by the unspeakable nature of these offences."
