Police have issued pictures of two people they want to talk to in connection with the stabbing to death of a man in Cambridgeshire.

The body of Kevin Lee, 48, from Fletton, Peterborough, was found by a member of the public near the A16 at Newborough on Saturday morning.

A post-mortem examination found he was stabbed to death, police said.

Police said they wanted to speak to Gary Stretch, 47, and 7ft 3in (2.2m) and Joanna Dennehy, 30.

Police said Ms Dennehy has a "very distinctive green tattoo on her right cheek, beneath her eye".

Members of the public are urged not to approach either of them but to report any sightings to police.

Det Ch Insp Martin Brunning, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "Gary and Joanna are very distinctive in their appearance which is why I am asking the public for help.

"They are very recognisable - even more so if they are together. We are keen to hear from anyone who has information about their whereabouts or believes they may have seen them since 2pm on Good Friday.

"Both Gary and Joanna live in the Peterborough area, however, they may be anywhere in the UK and I appeal to the public to think about whether they have seen these two people or know where they are now. I need to locate them as a matter of urgency."

A 23-year-old man from Peterborough who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released on bail until 24 May.
