The father of murdered Stephen Cameron has spoken out about the decision to move his son's killer Kenneth Noye into open conditions.

The decision to move road-rage killer and career criminal Kenneth Noye was confirmed yesterday after the justice secretary rubber-stamped his transfer.

Noye, 70, was convicted of the murder of 21-year-old Dartford electrician Stephen Cameron in an attack at the Swanley Interchange in 1996.

Ken Cameron told the Mirror he felt "totally let down" that Noye was to be transferred to open conditions.

He said: "I feel totally let down. I've had a few tears. That's not justice for Stephen.

"In open prison Noye will have day trips out and can go home for Christmas. That's not justice. I'm gutted.

"I was told he's been a really good boy, has done an anger management course and rehabilitation courses so he doesn't reoffend.

"He says what they want to hear and knows how to play the game because he's spent half his life in prison.

"The justice system has let us down. He had a fight with Stephen, he instigated it but Stephen gave him a good hiding so he went to his car to get a knife.

"He could have driven off but decided to go back and murder Stephen. He should be in for at least 25 years."

Noye was arrested two years after the murder in Spain after he fled the country.

He was given a life sentence and ordered to serve a minimum of 16 years.

Career criminal Noye was convicted in 1986 for his involvement in the 1983 Brink's-Mat heist - one of the UK's biggest robberies.

He was sentenced to 14 years in jail and released just two years before the murder of Stephen Cameron.

Noye had previously won a High Courty challenge against the decision by the then justice secretary Michael Gove blocked a move into an open jail.

An Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Public protection is our top priority and transfers to open conditions are made after a thorough, expert risk assessment carried out by the independent Parole Board.”
