A Facebook event set up by the protest group People's Assembly says the demonstration was sparked by a row over an article accusing Ed Miliband's father of "hating Britain".

It invites "all the people hated by the Daily Mail" to gather outside the newspaper's headquarters in West London at noon for an "upbeat, carnival-type protest".

A large blood-covered kitchen knife was found at the scene along with shoes Kearney had been seen wearing on the CCTV, also covered in David Remmer's blood.

Investigating officer Detective Inspector Liz Baker said: "Kearney’s intent to kill is clear. The trial judge His Honour Judge Wide could not be sure that Kearney had murdered for financial gain.

"However he admitted that his first actions, after David died, was to search his pockets, take all the money that he had on him in readiness for his holiday and leave the building."
