A mother and daughter who were jailed for the murder of their husband and father have been granted permission to appeal against their convictions.

Shirley, 65, and Lynette Banfield, 41, of Canterbury, Kent, were convicted last year of killing Don Banfield, 63, whose body has never been found.

They both received life sentences, with a minimum term of 18 years for Shirley Banfield and 16 years for her daughter.

Mr Banfield was last seen leaving the family home in London in May 2001.

No date has been set for the full hearing of the appeal.
