A NATIONAL newspaper has reported today (Thursday) that flowers and cards have been left at the graves of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman which could be from their killer, Ian Huntley.

Each of the girls' graves was adorned with a dozen roses around four days ago, along with cards written in blue biro, according to The Sun newspaper.

The card on Holly's grave reportedly carried the message: "To Holly, rest in peace, Ian", while the card on Jessica's grave read: "To Jess, rest in peace, Ian."

The report suggests that Holly's parents, Kevin and Nicola Wells, discovered the cards and flowers on the graves at St Andrew's Church in Soham and disposed of them.

It is not clear at this stage if the messages are from Huntley, who is currently serving a life sentence at Wakefield Prison.

Cambridgeshire police have confirmed that the matter is not under investigation.
