Road rage murderer Kenneth Noye moved to Standford Hill open prison

Road rage murderer Kenneth Noye has been moved to an open prison in Kent.

Noye was sentenced to life in 2000 after knifing 21-year-old Stephen Cameron to death on a motorway slip-road near Swanley four years earlier.

Now the notorious gangster has been moved to HMP Standford Hill on the Isle of Sheppey, and cleared for day release.

This has sparked fears he could come into contact with his victim's family, reports The Mirror.

Stephen’s father Ken, 71, told the paper he was disgusted Noye had been moved so close, adding he doesn't want revenge but simply justice.

Noye, who had stabbed an undercover policeman to death in the grounds of his mansion 11 years earlier, killed Mr Cameron following a trivial disagreement.

He cut in front of a van driven by Mr Cameron's fiancée and when the electrician shook his head, Noye stormed over and punched him before returning and stabbing him in the heart.

The 70-year-old could be freed by a parole panel next year and was moved to Standford Hill as it is close to his sons Kevin and Brett and his estranged wife Brenda.

The Mirror also reports various details about Noye's life in category D prison, claiming he has his own key, can wear his own clothes and can earn numerous luxuries.

In 1985 he stabbed undercover officer John Fordham 10 times but was cleared by a jury on the grounds of self-defence.

A year later he got 14 years for handling some of the £26 million Brink’s-Mat robbery gold.

Following Mr Cameron's murder he fled to Spain, eventually being extradited in 1998.

A Prison Service spokesman said today: “We do not ­comment on individuals.”
