A paranoid schizophrenic who "brutally" killed his elderly parents has been sentenced to life in a secure hospital.
51-year-old Timothy Crook is believed to have attacked his parents Robert Crook, 83, and Elsie Crook, 76, in the bedroom of their home in Swindon in 2007, strangling them with a belt and bludgeoning them with a hammer.
After the killings Crook put his parents' bodies in the back of their car, drove them 150 miles to a house he owned in Lincoln, and dumped them under wheelie bins.
He was convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility by a jury at Bristol Crown Court earlier this month.
Today a judge sentenced the former Ministry of Defence employee to a minimum life term of 16 years. The eight years he has already served in custody count towards this time.

The world's first test tube baby, who is from Bristol, has revealed the hate mail her parents received following her historic birth - including some splattered with blood.
The birth of Louise Brown in 1978 marked a scientific breakthrough after her parents Lesley and John became the first to successfully undergo IVF - in vitro fertilisation.
Mrs Brown celebrates her 37th birthday tomorrow (Saturday 25 July) and has also written her autobiography.
In it she describes how her family were sent fan mail but also some very nasty hate mail.
It was menacing and scary and considering the time the people must have taken in putting this thing together then sending it across the world to a three-month-old baby I would say a completely sick act by some sick minds.
Imagine how worrying this was for mum.
For a while she was even more careful when taking me out in the pram.
Mrs Brown is now a mother-of two and still living in Bristol with her husband, Wesley Mullinder. Her story, "My Life As The World's First Test Tube Baby", is out on 1 August.

An investigation into finances at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has closed as the Trust is now on track to improve its financial position.
The health sector regulator Monitor opened the investigation in November but is now satisfied that the Trust has a solid plan in place to support its long-term aims.
These include integrating its hospital services with GPs and social care services across South Somerset.
It's positive news for patients in Somerset that we were able to support the trust without the need for formal regulatory action. We believe that the trust has the right plans to tackle its short-term financial problems, with the right people in place at the top to deliver those plans.
