Two life sentences for twins' killer

Click to follow
A double killer was given two life sentences at the Old Bailey yesterday for the brutal murder of identical twin brothers whose battered bodies were found floating in a canal.

David Dillon told a friend that Christopher and Anthony Langford had gone for "a long swim" after he bludgeoned them to death in an apparently motiveless attack. He wheeled their bodies through the streets in a shopping trolley before dumping them in the Regents Canal in north London. The 38-year-old twins, who lived on the streets of the capital, were the sons of a retired teacher and came from Bedfordshire, the court heard. Dillon, 38, an unemployed decorator, originally from County Cork, had denied murdering the brothers between February and April last year.
