A MASSIVE police investigation is under way following the discovering of two bodies by a Cambridgeshire road.

Forensics officers have joined police throughout the day at Thorney Dyke - a mile or so from the Dog in a Doublet on the outskirts of Whittlesey – following the discovery of the bodies shortly before 11.30am on Wednesday.

There was growing suspicion that the two bodies are linked to the murder at the weekend of Kevin Lee, 48, of Fletton, Peterborough, who was stabbed to death and his body dumped in a ditch at Newborough.

The discovery of the two bodies was made by a member of the public who immediately called the police. The bodies were not thought to have been buried.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said the deaths are being treated as unexplained.
