CAMPAIGNERS fighting for the release of convicted killer Jeremy Bamber claim they have unearthed new evidence which proves his innocence.

Bamber was jailed in 1986 after being found guilty of the murders of his parents Nevill and June Bamber, his sister Sheila Caffell and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas, who were only six-years-old.

Bamber, 58, who is currently serving his whole life sentence at the high security Wakefield Prison, has always protested his innocence.

He claims it was Sheila, who had a history of schizophrenia, who was responsible for the tragedy.



Now supporters have released information which they claim proves Bamber’s account of the telephone calls to the police on the morning of the shootings.

His trial at Chelmsford Crown Court was told there was just one call to Essex Police.

Documented differences in the time of this call were put down to human error and the trial judge, Justice Drake, instructed the jury to take the time of the call as being 3.26am.

However, Bamber claims one call was made by Nevill from the scene of the shootings, White House Farm in Tolleshunt D’Arcy, at this time and another was made by him 11 minutes later from him at his home in Goldhanger.

Bamber’s team say they now have proof of two calls - one which led to PC Saxby receiving a call on his radio at 3.30am and another of Bamber’s call at 3.37am, after officers had been dispatched to the farm.

A document says PC West says Bamber was on the telephone at 3.37am in Goldhanger. It means Bamber could not have been at White House Farm 11 minutes earlier.



In 2010, following the discovery of the two different telephone call logs which recorded these individual calls, Bamber made a submission to the Criminal Case Review Commission outlining the differences in the logs which showed they related to two calls from two different people.

However, the CCRC put the two times down to human error.

Bamber is planning to present the fresh evidence to the CCRC claiming the judge misdirected the jury.

Bamber has already had two appeals into his conviction thrown out but hopes he will now get a third referral from the CCRC.

A drama about the tragedy is due to be screened by ITV in the new year.
