Jeremy Bamber has lost his latest bid to overturn his convictions for the murder of five of his relatives in Essex 25 years ago.

Bamber went to the High Court today to challenge a refusal by the Criminal Cases Review Commission, the independent body which investigates possible miscarriages of justice, to refer his case back to the Court of Appeal.

The 51 year old, together with two other murderers are involved in a European court battle against their "whole-life" prison terms.
