The families of the Nottingham killer’s victims said they “now face their own life sentence to ensure the monster is never set free” after the Court of Appeal ruled the sentence would not be commuted.

Valdo Calocane (32) repeatedly stabbed Irish student Grace O’Malley-Kumar, British student Barnaby Webber and carer Ian Coates during a knife attack in Nottingham last summer.
