The daughter of a woman murdered by her double killer ex-boyfriend has told how she warned her mother he was a menace.

Janet Scott was stabbed and run over by Simon Mellors after she found out he had not long been released from prison for killing his previous partner, Pearl Black.

Mrs Scott's daughter Amelia Karnstein has now spoken for the first time of how she urged her mother to end the relationship before he attacked her too.

Mellors, 56, had been convicted for murdering his partner, Ms Black, in May 1999 - but was freed on licence after serving a 12-year minimum term.

He met Mrs Scott, from Nottingham, in a bar in March 2017 the pair became close - but he kept from her his criminal past.

Eight weeks into their relationship, she realised that Mellors' claims about his career didn't add up and he showed her an online article about his previous conviction.
