A second man has been arrested in connection with the murder of former EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie.

Detectives investigating the killing detained a 35-year-old man on Friday on suspicion of being concerned in the murder.

Today, he was released on police bail pending further inquiries until a date in May.

Miss McCluskie’s brother, Tony McCluskie, 35, appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court on March 12, charged with Miss McCluskie’s murder. He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey at a future date.

Miss McCluskie’s torso was discovered in Regent’s Canal near Broadway Market, east London, on Tuesday March 6.

More body parts have since been recovered from the canal.

The actress, 29, who played Kerry Skinner in the BBC soap in 2001, went missing following the opening of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London.
