Cousin: Freeing killer Bamber would be 'dangerous'

Releasing 'whole lifer' Jeremy Bamber from jail would be "dangerous" to the public, his cousin has warned.

Senior judges are currently deciding whether whole-life terms given to Bamber and some other killers are a breach of human rights.

However his cousin, David Boutflour, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "He's killed five people.... you would be pretty irresponsible to let somebody like that out in to the public domain."

Bamber, who protests his innocence, was jailed for shooting dead five members of his family in Essex in 1985.
