A man who bludgeoned a woman to death in Bournemouth is to travel to his native Italy to appeal over a murder conviction there.

Danilo Restivo is currently serving a life sentence in the UK for killing Heather Barnett in the Dorset town in 2002.

While in prison, an Italian court found him guilty in his absence of the murder of Elisa Claps, 16, in Potenza in 1993.

His lawyers have won the right for him to be in court in Salerno on March 20 to appeal against that conviction.
