Neville Hord killed 30-year-old Jodi Willsher in what prosecutors say was a "cold blooded public execution" at the Aldi store in Skipton just days before Christmas last year.

Today judges at the Court of Appeal in London cut his minimum jail term, saying the initial sentence that he should serve at least 30 years was too long.
