Police dig up garden at paedophile couple's former home
Convicted paedophile couple David and Pauline Williams used to live in the bungalow on Cullompton Hill in Bradninch
Yesterday scaffolding and a large excavation tent was put up over the garden of the former home of David and Pauline Williams.
The pair, who were jailed last year for historic child sex offences, had boasted about their friendship with Fred and Rose West.
David Williams, 57, was jailed for life, while his wife, Pauline 53, was sentenced to 12 years.
