Ripper-obsessed Colchester teen guilty of double murder

A teenager from Colchester, described as having a fascination with the Yorkshire Ripper, has been found guilty of murdering two strangers in Essex.

James Fairweather, 17, admitted the manslaughter of James Attfield and Nahid Almanea, but denied murder on grounds of diminished responsibility.

Fairweather was aged 15 when he committed both murders.
