A second arm, believed to belong to murdered EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie, was found on Thursday morning in Regent’s Canal, where her torso was discovered earlier this month.

The right arm is the fourth body part to be found in the canal this week, after the left arm was discovered by a British Waterways employee on Monday, and two legs were found in separate locations of the canal by the police Marine Support Unit on Tuesday.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We await further tests to determine identity but at this stage it is believed to be connected to Gemma McCluskie.”

The marine divers are continuing their search in the canal for the remaining body part.

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.

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.
