A witness has told how double killer Christopher Halliwell drove a white van similar to the one spotted at the scene of an unsolved murder.

And he revealed the taxi driver lived just four miles from the field where Julie Finley’s naked body was dumped after she had been snatched in a city centre.

The evidence comes after the Mirror found striking similarities between the murders of Julie, Carol Clark, Jackie Waines and Yvonne Fitt and the two Halliwell is spending life in jail for.

And the claims by the witness could provide a crucial ­breakthrough in Julie’s case which has been unsolved for 25 years.

He urged police to ­reinvestigate Halliwell, 55 – currently being portrayed in ITV drama A ­Confession – and said he is willing to give a statement.

He said: “I think the police should look at this and I am happy to talk to them.”

Julie, 23, vanished from the centre of Liverpool on August 4, 1994, and was found strangled a day later in Rainford, Lancs.
