SUFFOLK strangler Steve Wright has dropped an appeal against his five murder convictions.

The former Bromley and Plumstead landlord who was jailed for life last February is reportedly no longer having an appeal hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on February 24.

Pub goers who knew the 50-year-old when he ran The White Horse pub, now The Lounge, in Red Hill, Chislehurst, were shocked to hear of his crimes last year.

Wright struck up a relationship with the pub's barmaid, Sarah Whiteley and the couple moved to Plumstead and had a baby in 1992.

There, Wright ran the Rose and Crown pub, in Plumstead High Street.

He was found guilty of murdering five prostitutes in Ipswich in 2006 at Ipswich Crown Court last February.
