"Officers from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit have made attempts to speak to Marshall in relation to the information given in court by his barrister about the dismemberment of bodies in the 90s," said a statement from Herts police.

"At this stage Mr Marshall is not assisting police with their inquiries. Major crime officers continue their investigations in liaison with the Metropolitan Police.
