A SUSPECT in the murder of a woman more than 30 years ago has had his police bail extended for a third time.

The 58-year-old man, from Fareham, was arrested at his home last year in connection with the murder of Sally McGrath, of Peterborough.

She was found dead in woods near the city in March 1980. He was also arrested on suspicion of serious sexual offences.

It followed a cold case review into the killing of the 22-year-old.

Miss McGrath was last seen alive on the afternoon of July 11, 1979 at the Bull Hotel, Westgate, Peterborough, in the company of a man.

Her body was found the next year on March 1 partially buried in woods.

The suspect, who has not been named, has been bailed by Cambridgeshire police until next Tuesday.

A 55-year-old woman from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, was also arrested last December on suspicion of assisting an offender and perverting the course of justice.
