Danilo Restivo's whole life tariff reduced to 40 years

Convicted "hair-in-hand" double-murderer Danilo Restivo has won an appeal against his whole life sentence.

Restivo, 40, was jailed last year for the murder of Bournemouth mother Heather Barnett in 2002.

He has also been found guilty of murdering 16-year-old Elisa Claps in Potenza, Italy, in 1993.

The Court of Appeal ordered he serve a minimum term of 40 years before being eligible for parole. Mrs Barnett's family say they are disappointed.
