A man has been charged with the murders of two women killed more than 30 years ago.

David Fuller, 66, was arrested on Thursday in connection with the deaths of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce, from Kent, in 1987.

Cold case detectives have since charged Mr Fuller, from Heathfield, East Sussex, with two counts of murder.

Kent Police said he had been remanded in custody to appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Tuesday 8 December.

Assistant Chief Constable Tracey Harman, from Kent Police, said: "Whilst more than three decades have passed since these murders took place, I would urge anyone who has any information, no matter how minor or insignificant it may appear to be, to contact us."

Ms Pierce, 20, was attacked outside her home in the town's Grosvenor Park on 24 November.

Her body was found on 15 December in a field near Romney Marsh.
