    The Metropolitan Police has been urged to launch a new dig site in the hopes of finding another victim of serial killer Levi Bellfield.

    Earlier this year, Bellfield reportedly told officers from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team where the body of missing student Elizabeth Chau was.

    The former club bouncer, 54, is currently serving three life terms for murders including that of 13-year-old Milly Dowler.

    He is also believed to have confessed to attacking 23-year-old Sarah Spurnell with a hammer in Hastings, East Sussex, in 2004.

    However, it is his admission to known where the body of Ms Chau was that has caused outrage because police have so far not commenced digging in the area where her body is suspected to be located.

    The Met reportedly told the teen's family that the area is too "vast" right now.

    Suresh Grover, who is representing her family, has been in contact with the investigation team, police commissioner Sir Mark Rowley and London's Mayor Sadiq Khan.

    Speaking to The Mirror, he said: “We haven’t heard anything, I’ve sent a letter to the Commissioner’s and the Mayor’s office, and the investigating team.

    “The family is just waiting. We had a meeting with The Met two weeks ago and we’re waiting for a meeting with the Commissioner in the hope that we can convince the Metropolitan Commissioner to dig where Elizabeth is probably buried.

    “It’s very frustrating and very hurtful for them (the family).”

    Bellfield’s lawyer Theresa Clark says her client has also offered to take police to the remains of the teen.

    She said Bellfield, 55, would help if bigger and better maps were brought for him to analyse.

    A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “The Met is taking the disclosures made very seriously. Work is ongoing to investigate the claims.

    “We can confirm we remain in contact with Elizabeth Chau’s family and continue to keep them updated with our enquiries.

    “At this time we will not be providing an ongoing commentary.”
