Road rage killer Kenneth Noye, who was born in Bexleyheath, has lost his bid to have his sentence reduced.

The 65-year-old stabbed 21-year-old Stephen Cameron to death at the M25 Swanley slip-road in 1996.

He fled to Spain after the killing but Mr Cameron’s girlfriend Danielle Cable, who witnessed the murder, was flown out to help identify him and he was extradited in 1998.

Noye was given a life sentence in 2000 after he admitted the crime but pleaded self-defence.

He lost appeals against reducing his conviction in 2001 and 2011, and had sought the chance to renew his challenge to the 16-year minimum term he was handed at the Old Bailey.

But today three appeal court judges dismissed the application saying it was “wholly without merit”
