White House Farm murderer Jeremy Bamber loses bid to leave maximum security prison

A mass murderer who killed five members of his family, including two children, has lost an attempt to be held in less secure prison conditions.

Jeremy Bamber is serving a life sentence for murdering his adoptive parents, his sister and her two six-year-old children at White House Farm in 1985.

He launched a legal challenge against a refusal by the prison service to downgrade him from maximum security conditions.

In March, a senior official decided not to move Bamber out of category A, for the most dangerous prisoners held in maximum security conditions.

He also refused an oral hearing over the issue, which Bamber’s lawyers argued was “unreasonable”.

They asked Mr Justice Julian Knowles to grant permission for a full hearing of Bamber's challenge.
