A triple murder suspect has been caught in a North London cemetery after police launched a massive manhunt.

Kyle Clifford, 26, was bundled into the back of an ambulance in Enfield this afternoon.


Clifford is receiving medical treatment after being found with injuries but police stressed no shots were fired.

He was apprehended by armed police and paramedics on Wednesday afternoon after the ex-soldier was accused of killing Carol Hunt, 61, and her two daughters Hannah, 28, and Louise, 25.

The women, who were fatally wounded inside their Hertfordshire home yesterday, were wife and daughters of BBC Five Live racing commentator John Hunt.

The victims died after being found seriously injured at the Hunt’s home in Bushey at about 7pm on Tuesday.

Clifford was believed to have been known to the victims, Hertfordshire Police has claimed.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins said: “This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

“This investigation is moving at pace and formal identification of the victims is yet to take place.”

She added: “Following extensive enquiries, the suspect has been located and nobody else is being sought in connection with the investigation at this time.

“We have had an overwhelming number of calls and would like to express our gratitude to the members of the public who have contacted us.

“We would still appeal for anyone with information or footage to please contact police directly.”

The crossbow killings prompted Home Secretary Yvette Cooper to urgently consider tougher laws.

A Home Office spokesperson said: “This is an appalling incident and the Home Secretary is being kept updated by the police.

“We keep legislation under constant review and a call for evidence was launched earlier this year to look at whether further controls on crossbows should be introduced.

“The Home Secretary will swiftly consider the findings to see if laws need to be tightened further.”
