The father of M25 road rage victim Stephen Cameron says he feels “betrayed” after it was revealed his killer could be allowed to walk free in just six months.

Noye, who was born in Bexleyheath and lived in West Kingsdown, is currently serving a life sentence for stabbing to death electrician Mr Cameron, 21, from Dartford, in an attack on the Swanley slip road of the motorway in 1996.

He was recommended for release a year ago but then-justice secretary Michael Gove blocked the move, much to the relief of the victim’s family.

Now though, father Ken Cameron says he has been told the parole board will start to review Noye’s case in January.

He told The Sun: “I feel betrayed, totally let down. Stephen never got a chance at life. Noye should remain behind bars for the rest of his.

“All we wanted do was get on with our lives but this is a constant worry for me and my family.

“We have never wanted revenge, we only wanted justice and life should mean life.”

His wife, Toni, died in April aged 73, and Mr Cameron said she “would be spitting bullets now” as “she wanted [Noye] to die in prison”.

Two years before killing Mr Cameron, Noye had been released from prison for handling bullion stolen in the Brink’s-Mat robbery.

He stabbed to death police officer John Fordham in January 1985 in the grounds of his Kent home, but was acquitted at trial after claiming he was acting in self-defence.

A spokesperson for the parole board said: “We can confirm that the Ministry of Justice has referred the case of Mr Kenneth Noye for his next parole review.

“As with all cases referred to the parole board the case will undergo a paper review in the first instance.

“The review may be concluded at that stage, or may be directed to an oral hearing.

“Parole reviews are currently taking between six to 12 months to conclude, if they require an oral hearing.

“The parole board is unable to comment on the specifics of individual cases.”
