WHAT is thought to be women’s clothing has been dredged up by police at the same spot in Wiltshire where boots believed to belong to murdered Sian O’Callaghan were discovered.

Members of the major crime investigation team have continued searching a pond near Ramsbury and have revealed up to 60 pieces of material under mud and silt.

Another pile thought to contain women’s clothes has also been found 100 yards away. The latest find includes a chunky knitted cardigan.

Wiltshire Police have said they are satisfied that these clothes did not belong to Sian O'Callaghan.

The first boot was discovered on Thursday. The second was spotted the following day when a single-barrelled shotgun was also found.

The items will be sent for forensic testing but the force has said officers are keeping an open mind as to why they are there and that they may not be linked to the investigation.

Sian, aged 22 from Swindon was abducted and killed in March 2011. Taxi driver Christopher Halliwell is currently serving a life sentence for her murder.

Searches will continue over the next few days
