The MP for the area of Essex where Jeremy Bamber killed five members of his family has condemned a decision by the European Court of Human Rights which ruled against the killer's whole life sentence.
The Conservative MP for Witham, Priti Patel, said it should not be the business of European courts or European judges to interfere in decisions made by British courts.
Ms Patel said: "It demonstrates how out of touch the European Court is and how arrogant the European judges are to meddle in the court process in British courts."
