In July, Couzens lost an attempt to overturn his whole-life term for the murder of Ms Everard.

The ex-Metropolitan Police officer, who used his position to trick Ms Everard into his car, had challenged his sentence at the Court of Appeal.

But the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett, said the crime was so exceptional the sentence should stand.
