Devon police digging at former home of Fred West's friends

The garden at the former home of a paedophile couple, who knew serial killers Fred and Rose West, is being dug up by police based on a tip-off.

Devon and Cornwall Police began excavation work at the property in Bradninch, near Exeter, Devon, on Wednesday morning.

David Williams was jailed for life in 2015 and his wife Pauline for 12 years for the rape, sexual assault and beating of boys and girls.

The couple became friends of the Wests while running a pub in Gloucester in the 1980s.
