A SECOND café could have been used by serial killer Fred West to murder and dispose of victims.

He jointly owned The Green Lantern café in Gloucester with his father-in-law.

Locals say West lured schoolgirls into his clutches there.

The café has since been demolished and flats built.

The site is on the same street as the Clean Plate Cafe being dug up by cops searching for 15-year-old Mary Bastholm.

A row of old garages close to West’s former property is also said to have been used by him in the 1970’s, raising concerns of more bodies there.

West’s father-in-law Bill Letts was also a depraved sadist who sexually abused daughter Rose.

He lived in a flat with wife Daisy above The Green Lantern Café.

Rent books exclusively seen by The Sun show the signatures of Fred and Rose as they leased the café to a Mrs Wagner for £80 a month.

West is known to have met one of his victims, pregnant Shirley Robinson, at the Green Lantern Café.

She was murdered, dismembered and buried at the Wests’ family home at 25 Cromwell Street.

Police are expected to spend several weeks digging in the basement of the Clean Plate Café after a production company making an ITV documentary took a cadaver dog and a ground radar machine there.

West killed himself in jail in 1995 aged 53 while awaiting trial for 12 murders — but admitted he carried out up to 20 more.

Rose West, now 67, is serving a whole life tariff for ten murders.

Mary Bastholm's brother convinced Fred West was behind her death after the 15-year-old went missing on 6 January 1968
