Colchester murders: Police interview with James Fairweather

James Fairweather, 17, who has been convicted of double murder, told police voices in his head were "laughing louder and louder" as he killed one of his victims in a Colchester park.

The teenager, described as having a fascination with the Yorkshire Ripper, has been convicted of the 2014 murders of James Attfield and Nahid Almanea.

The two were strangers to Fairweather and killed just a few weeks apart. He was found guilty at Guildford Crown Court following a two-week trial.

In police interviews, he gave a graphic description of the first attack.
