25 July 2014 Last updated at 21:23 BST

The violent ex-boyfriend of teenager Jayden Parkinson has been jailed for life for her murder.

Ben Blakeley strangled the 17-year-old, who was pregnant with his child, and buried her in his uncle's grave in Didcot, Oxfordshire, last December.

In a statement, Jayden's family said they had their own life sentence and that their "nightmare" would never end.

Blakeley, from Reading, denied murder but admitted killing Jayden and was ordered to serve a minimum of 20 years.
