By Jamie Hill - 23 February 2019


Wiltshire Police have cordoned off a field off Pentylands Lane, Highworth and are carrying out a search using dogs.The search started yesterday evening and is carrying on today.

Officers have been clearing woodland and a forensics tent has been raised but Wiltshire Police have not confirmed yet what they are looking for but have an open mind of a possible connection to Linda Razzell's murder in 2002.

In a statement earlier today a Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “We are conducting some local enquiries in the Highworth area following information from a member of the public.

“As part of these enquiries, we have cordoned off an area in a field off Pentylands Lane. People in the local area are, therefore, likely to see an increased police presence in this area over the weekend. Our enquiries also include the use of police dogs.

“As these enquiries are at an early stage, it would be inappropriate to comment at further at this time.

"In regards to your question about Linda Razzell, our enquiries are at an early stage and we are keeping an open mind."

Mrs Razzell's husband Glyn was convicted of the Highworth mother of four's murder in 2003 despite always maintaining his innocence. Her body was never found.
