A MURDERER who admitted a string of violent robberies has been handed six life sentences.

Duane Daniels, aged 27 and already serving life for the brutal killing of New Cross bouncer George Napier, was sentenced at the Old Bailey on February 5.

The court heard how Daniels and his gang invaded flats above banks and post offices stealing up to £25,000 a time in what was described as a "vicious, callous reign of terror".

The killer, who committed nearly 1,000 violent crimes by the time he was 23, went on the raids last year, only months after murdering 36-year-old Mr Napier outside the Paradise Bar in New Cross Road.
