A man who stalked and murdered his ex-girlfriend, in her own home in Gateshead, has lodged an appeal to have his sentence reduced.

Trimaan Dhillon is serving 22 years for killing 24 year old Alice Ruggles.

Alice's parents have since campaigned to have government laws around stalking tightened.

The Crown Prosecution Service says no date for an appeal hearing has yet been set.
