Severed head recovered from canal
Head discovered by a member of the public
POLICE have recovered a severed head from a canal where the decapitated remains of a former EastEnders actress were found.
Scotland Yard said the discovery was made by a member of the public in Regent’s Canal in Hackney, east London, yesterday afternoon.
It comes more than six months after the headless and limbless body of actress Gemma McCluskie, 29, was discovered in the same stretch of water.
Miss McCluskie, who played Kerry Skinner in the BBC soap in 2001, had been missing for a week after attending the £650 million opening of the new Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London.
Her brother Tony McCluskie, 35, is due to stand trial accused of her murder on November 12.
