NEW evidence has been discovered in the Becky Godden-Edwards murder case - almost exactly three years after her body was found.

Teams of specialist officers were dispatched to the field in Eastleach, near Fairford, Gloucestershire, on Wednesday and made the new discovery, which police described only as a ‘bone’, yesterday.

Searches continued today and officers began carefully picking their way across the site near to where the tragic blonde’s body was found in early April 2011.

The entrance to the field was being manned by a police guard to protect the investigation, and a land surveyor was also in attendance.

The area being searched is in the same location where Becky, who disappeared between the end of 2002 and early 2003, was discovered after police visited the site as part of their investigations into the murder of Sian O’Callaghan.

While it is not clear at this stage what information has prompted Wiltshire Police to return to the site, they have confirmed that it is linked to the investigation into Becky’s murder.

Anyone with any information should contact Wiltshire Police immediately on 101.
