Two men arrested over a double murder at a massage parlour in Shrewsbury have been transferred to a Shropshire police station for questioning.

The men were arrested by Dyfed Powys Police on Tuesday, one day after detectives released CCTV images of a man they wanted to question.

Annie Eels, 55, of Powys, and Samantha Tapper, 24, of Wolverhampton, were found beaten to death on 2 July.

The men will be questioned by detectives in Shropshire on Wednesday.

Stolen monitor

Det Ch Insp Sheila Thornes, of West Mercia Police, said officers were still collating information received following the appeal on Monday.

During a news conference police released images of a 6ft shaven-headed man wearing sunglasses and dark clothing who had spent 12 minutes at the Rachael's Health Studio in Frankwell on 1 July.

Grandmother Mrs Eels and Ms Tapper, a mother-of-one, died of head injuries and were found in the lounge area of the massage parlour.

A CCTV monitor and 300 were also taken from the parlour on the same day, officers said.
