Road rage killer Kenneth Noye will find out if he will be released from prison within two weeks.

Bexleyheath-born Noye, 68, stabbed electrician Stephen Cameron, 21, to death in a road rage attack in 1996.

He went on the run after the murder on the M25 in Kent but was captured in Spain in 1998 and jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 16 years in 2000.

The Parole Board confirmed that it had held a hearing to consider his release this week.

A spokesman added that no decision would be made until September 22.

If successful, Noye could be released on licence from Wayland Prison, Norfolk, by the end of the year.

Noye had been due to be granted hearings earlier this year but these were cancelled.

Career criminal Noye had earlier stabbed to death an undercover officer outside his mock Tudor mansion after the £26 million Brink’s-Mat bullion heist but successfully pleaded self-defence.
