Dale Cregan given life sentence and told he will never be released

The man who admitted killing former Island resident, police officer Fiona Bone, has been given a life sentence and told he will never be released.

Dale Cregan will die in prison after being given a whole life tariff.

Even before today’s sentencing, Cregan had pleaded guilty to four murders - including killing policewomen Fiona and her colleague Nicola Hughes in Greater Manchester last September.

Fiona's father Paul gave this reaction outside court:
