A man who murdered a 17-year-old girl in a sexually motivated attack in Shropshire has lodged an appeal against his whole-life sentence.

Jamie Reynolds, 23, hanged Georgia Williams in Wellington, last May. Her body was found days later in woodland in north Wales.

During sentencing at Stafford Crown Court, Mr Justice Wilkie said he deserved the severest sentence.

His age and guilty plea are expected to constitute his grounds for appeal.

In January, Reynolds' solicitor said he understood there would not be an appeal.

During Reynold's sentencing, a psychiatric report found he had the potential to progress "to become a serial killer".

A date for the hearing at the Court of Appeal has yet to be set.
