A Ukrainian lecturer told ITV News Pavlo Lapsyhn, who pleaded guilty to the murder of a Muslim pensioner, was described as a "clever and shy" person and it was a surprise when he was charged with his crimes.
I asked Hugh Humphreys (Executive Deputy Chairman of Delcam where Pavlo Lapshyn was on a work placement) to describe Pavel and his behaviour and he replied that Pavel was quiet and a calm young man with poor English, not a very sociable guy.
Which is not suprising – if one doesn't speak the language well, one can't talk too much. He described him as a clever and a shy guy. This is how it looked.
It was a huge turn-up to everyone that he could be charged with the crime, as he lived so quietly there.
A Ukrainian student has admitted stabbing an 82-year-old Muslim pensioner within five days of arriving in the UK.
Police have released images showing Ukrainian student Pavlo Lapshyn preparing for and carrying out attacks in the Midlands.
