Jurors in the murder trial of Steve Wright have visited sites where the bodies of five women were found.

The women, who had been working as prostitutes, were found dead in isolated spots near Ipswich, Suffolk, in the space of 10 days in 2006.

The jury also stopped outside the London Road home of 49-year-old Mr Wright, who denies murdering the women and is on trial at Ipswich Crown Court.

They then travelled outside the town to where the women's bodies were found.

The judge, Mr Justice Gross, told jurors not to inspect any floral tributes they may see.

Red light district

During the prosecution opening last week, the court heard how Tania Nicol, 19, Gemma Adams, 25, Anneli Alderton, 24, Paula Clennell, 24, and 29-year-old Annette Nicholls went missing during six weeks from October to December 2006.

The jury of nine men and three women first stopped outside the flat in a terraced house in Ipswich's red light district where Mr Wright lived before his arrest.

The jury later travelled to the area where the bodies of Miss Adams and Miss Nicol were found and were taken to a bridge which crossed a brook on the A1071 near Hintlesham.

Jurors were then taken to Hintlesham Fisheries, made up of two lakes divided by a track.

The court heard last week that Miss Adams' body was found in a brook near the fisheries on 2 December 2006.

Jurors later visited the site in nearby Copdock where Miss Nicol's body was found six days later.

They then travelled to Nacton, where Miss Alderton's body was discovered in woodland on 10 December.

Here, the jury studied an area of woodland just off the road before moving on to Levington where the bodies of Miss Clennell and Miss Nicholls were found.

Both sites are about five yards (4.6m) from the side of Old Felixstowe Road.

The jurors have been accompanied by Peter Wright, the prosecution barrister, and Timothy Langdale QC, who is representing Wright.

The trial has been adjourned until Tuesday morning.
