    Tourists are snapping themselves along Cromwell Street, Gloucester, where the duo raped, tortured, killed and dismembered women and girls during a 20-year reign of terror.

    The road became the focus of a major police investigation in 1994 when officers obtained a search warrant to look for Fred and Rose’s missing daughter Heather, who was killed and buried under the patio in 1987.

    Remains of a further eight victims were found at their property, number 25, which was then crushed in October 1996. A pathway was put in its place.

    But now the road has become a magnet for so-called ‘dark tourism’ – seeing visits by Instagram users who want to take the perfect selfie with the road sign and on the site where the house used to stand.
