erial killer Levi Bellfield has allegedly confessed to the murder of a mother and child more than 20 years ago.

Bellfield is serving a life sentence after being found guilty of killing schoolgirl Milly Dowler in 2011.

Bellfield has now admitted that he also murdered mother and daughter Lin and Megan Russell in 199, a lawyer has claimed.

Lin, 45, and Megan, six, were bludgeoned to death in an attack near Chillenden in which her other daughter, Josie, nine, suffered severe head injuries and the family’s dog, Lucy, was killed.

Michael Stone has twice been convicted of the murders but he has always protested his innocence.

His solicitor Paul Bacon says he has managed to obtain a copy of Bellfield’s alleged confession.

He told Sky News: “It is a full and frank confession. I believe what he is saying and I think if the police were to interview him he would finally admit the murders.”

In the statement, former nightclub bouncer Bellfield is said to go into chilling detail about the alleged attacks.

He reportedly said: “I was wearing bright yellow marigold washing-up gloves and holding a hammer in my right hand. In my car I had a screwdriver, a lock knife, a hammer, yellow marigold gloves and a very long black bootlace.

“My first intention was to just attack Lin, but I quickly changed my mind due to the screams and was worried she would fight back given the children were with her.

“I approached Lin and held her right arm tight. She asked me not to harm her children. She was calm. Had she screamed I would have attacked her and left not harming the children.

“The situation just got out of control and the more she complied it just gave me more confidence. I walked all three of them off the track. I forced Lin to sit down.”

Bellfield, who now calls himself Yusuf Rahim, is serving a whole-life tariff after being found guilty at the Old Bailey of abducting and killing schoolgirl Milly. He was jailed in 2011.

The 13-year-old was snatched from the street while on her way home from school in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, in March 2002.

Bellfield was already in jail for the murders of Amelie Delagrange and Marsha McDonnell, and the attempted murder of Kate Sheedy.

In 2008 he had been given a whole-life term for murdering Ms McDonnell, 19, in 2003, and murdering Ms Delagrange, 22, and attempting to murder Ms Sheedy, 18, in 2004.
