Road rage killer Kenneth Noye has failed in a bid to get a 16-year minimum jail term reduced.
Noye, 65, was given a mandatory life sentence in 2000 after being convicted of murdering Stephen Cameron, 21, on an M25 slip road at Swanley, Kent, in 1996.
The Court of Appeal today refused him permission to challenge the minimum 16-year term he was ordered to serve, after a hearing in London.
Stephen's parents Ken & Toni Cameron from Suffolk have criticised Noye's repeated legal appeals.
