UPDATE: Murderer Colin Campbell jailed for life

Murderer Colin Campbell has been sentenced to life in prison for the 1981 killing of teenager Claire Woolterton.

A majority guilty verdict was returned by the jury at Reading Crown Court at 12.20pm today, following a three-week trial.

This afternoon Campbell was told he will serve a minimum of 24 years in jail for murdering the 17-year-old.

Claire's body was found in Barry Avenue, Windsor, on August 28, 1981, after she was last seen in Ealing the day before.
