A teenager fascinated by serial killers has been detained for 27 years for the murders of two strangers in Essex.
James Fairweather was found guilty of stabbing James Attfield and Nahid Almanea to death in Colchester in 2014, when he was 15.
The 17-year-old, from Colchester, admitted manslaughter but denied murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
He was convicted last week and given two life sentences at the Old Bailey.
