An arm and two legs believed to belong to murdered EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie, have been found in Regent’s Canal, where her torso was discovered earlier this month.

It is understood each leg was found separately by the Marine Support Unit on Tuesday.

This comes after police were called at 9.35am on Monday to reports of an arm found by a member of British Waterways.

A police spokeswoman said: “Further searches of the Regents Canal in Hackney by our Marine Support Unit led to the discovery of two legs yesterday.

“We await further tests to determine identity but at this stage it is believed to be connected to the killing of Gemma McCluskie

Police are still searching the area for the remaining body parts.

Her brother Tony McCluskie, has been charged with her murder. He is currently in custody and awaiting a hearing at the Old Bailey in June.

The 29-year-old actress, who was best known for playing Kerry Skinner in TV soap EastEnders in 2001, went missing from her home in Bethnal Green on February 29, after attending the opening of the new Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.
