Melanie Road's mother says killer Christopher Hampton 'a monster'

The mother of a teenager who was sexually assaulted and stabbed to death 32 years ago says the man responsible is "a monster".

Melanie Road was returning to her home in Bath after a night out in June 1984 when she was murdered by Christopher Hampton.

Hampton was only arrested after a DNA swab of a close relative, arrested for a minor offence, showed a match to evidence found at the scene of Melanie's murder.

Jean Road, Melanie's mother, first saw him in court in December.
