FAMILY killer Jeremy Bamber, who murdered five members of his family in 1985, must never be released from prison, a judge decided today.

Mr Justice Tugendhat has reviewed Bamber's whole-life tariff after Bamber had asked for a specific minimum term to be set to give him some hope of parole.

The judge said: "In my judgment, you ought to spend the whole of the rest of your life in prison, and I so order.''

Bamber, now 47, who continues to maintain his innocence, was found guilty of shooting his wealthy adoptive parents, June and Nevill, his sister Sheila Caffell, and her six-year-old twin sons Daniel and Nicholas at their farmhouse in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, Essex, in August 1985.
