Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Former bouncer Levi Bellfield lost a bid today to challenge his conviction for the kidnap and murder of teenager Milly Dowler.
An application for permission to appeal by Bellfield, 43, was rejected by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, Mr Justice Wyn Williams and Mr Justice Maddison, sitting at the Court of Appeal in London.
Bellfield was given a whole life term in June 2011 after being found guilty of abducting and killing 13-year-old Milly following a trial at the Old Bailey.
Milly was snatched from the street while on her way from school to her home in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, in March 2002. She was found 6 months later in woods in Hampshire.
