GRIEVING: Toni Cameron. Her son Stephen was stabbed to death by road rage killer Kenneth Noye.

THE mother of the victim of road rage killer Kenneth Noye has given an insight into her pain 12 years after the murder as the gangster makes a fresh bid for freedom.

THE mother of the victim of road rage killer Kenneth Noye has given an insight into her pain 12 years after the murder as the gangster makes a fresh bid for freedom.

Toni Cameron, 60, formerly from Swanley, spoke of her hatred for the jailed gangster and revealed that she stays in touch with her murdered son's former fiancée Danielle Cable who is still under witness protection.

Bexleyheath-born Noye, now 60, from West Kingsdown, was jailed in April 2000 for killing Stephen Cameron, 21, on the M25 at Swanley, in May 1996.

Last Friday, the killer won permission for a fresh legal challenge as he bids for freedom.

It follows the refusal of the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) to refer his conviction for the murder of Mr Cameron to the Appeal court.

Mrs Cameron, who now lives in Suffolk, said: "How can this man try and appeal again? He has ruined everyone's life; he is a killer and should die in jail. I long for the day a reporter calls me up and says have you heard he is dead? How do you feel? I will be relieved, delighted.

"What that man has done to two families!I still stay in touch with Danielle. I do not know where she is, I would not want to because it would put us all in danger.

"She text me on mother's day, saying how she loved me and still thought as me as her mother and said I was a great mum. If I'm honest it brought a tear to my eye and I sat there and had a cry. We exchange Christmas and birthday cards but it is always through a second party. We could never meet although I think about seeing her again every day. It is just amazing to hear her voice on the phone.

"She thinks about Stephen all the time and so do her family, every day. I go to places and I know Stephen would have loved this, or he would have come here. It is heartbreaking and every single time I hear he (Noye) is trying to get out again it sends a shiver down my spine. He is a killer, a monster and should never walk the streets again as a free man."

Appeals against Noye's conviction in 2001 and in 2004 failed in his bid to challenge his mandatory life term.

He is seeking a declaration that the CCRC's decision in October 2006 not to send his case back to the Appeal Court was legally flawed. Last Friday Lord Justice Richards and Mrs Justice Swift, at London's High Court, granted permission for a one-day judicial review hearing of that decision.

They said there were sufficient fresh grounds "to warrant further consideration of this case".

Noye, who was extradited from Spain in 1998 to stand trial for Mr Cameron's murder, has been held in the special secure unit at Whitemoor Prison, in Cambridgeshire, since May 1999.

He fled to Spain in 1996 after stabbing his 21-year-old victim.

But he was arrested in 1998 after he was identified by Ms Cable, who under witness protection now uses another name.

Mrs Cameron added: "Danielle did marry but they split a few years ago and she has a child now who she dearly loves so that is her life, her and her own little girl just getting by. It is horrendous but a mutual feeling that will link us forever.

"Noye is a villain, a gangster. What he put that girl through on that day is horrendous. She has been so brave, braver than you could imagine and she lives with that pain everyday as I do.
