Mur­dered Easten­der Gemma’s arm found

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN arm thought to be­long to dead Eastenders star Gemma Mc­cluskie, whose head­less torso was found in a canal, has been dis­cov­ered in the same stretch of water.

The limb was spot­ted by a Bri­tish Wa­ter­ways em­ployee two weeks af­ter the 29-year-old’s mu­ti­lated body was re­cov­ered in east London.

Divers have been search­ing Re­gent’s Canal to try and find her other miss­ing body parts.

A Scot­land Yard spokesman said: “Of­fi­cers re­cov­ered the limb close to the Broad­way Mar­ket stretch of the canal.

“We await fur­ther tests to de­ter­mine iden­tity, but at this stage it is be­lieved to be con­nected to the mur­der of Gemma.”

The ac­tress was last seen re­turn­ing to her home in Hack­ney, that she shared with her brother, Tony, who is ac­cused of her mur­der.

Gemma played Kerry Skin­ner in the BBC1 soap in 2001.
