NAIL bomber David Copeland will serve at least 50 years behind bars for three murders carried out during a reign of terror in London, a High Court judge ruled today.

One of those killed was Nik Moore, who grew up in Felixstowe with his parents and siblings, before moving to the capital.

Copeland, now 30, was given six life sentences at the Old Bailey in June 2000 for three counts of murder and three of causing explosions in order to endanger life. All the offences took place in April 1999.
