M25 road-rage killer Kenneth Noye is to be released from prison, the Parole Board has confirmed.Noye, 71, stabbed 21-year-old Stephen Cameron to death in an attack at the Swanley interchange of the M25 in Kent in 1996.Noye later claimed he killed Mr Cameron in self-defence during a road-rage fight. He was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 16 years in 2000.The Parole Board said he no longer poses a risk to the public.Mr Cameron's father Ken told the BBC: "I'm gutted."
When asked whether he had spoken to the Parole Board, he said: "Yes, they're letting him out."The electrician was stabbed in front of his fiancee Danielle Cable, who was given a new identity and has been living under a witness protection scheme ever since.Noye went on the run after the killing, and was tracked down in Spain in 1998 and extradited back to the UK.

The panel heard how Noye was of "good conduct and compliance" in prison and had "worked positively" with officials dealing with his case.The Parole Board said Noye "had demonstrated an ability to deal appropriately with potentially violent situations in prison and was clearly well motivated to avoid further offending in the community".The panel said it was satisfied that Noye met the test for release and was suitable for return to the community.He will have to reside at a designated address, be of good behaviour, and report as required for supervision or other appointments.There will be strict limitations on his contacts, movements and activities.Roy Ramm, a former commander in specialist operations at New Scotland Yard, said: "Kenneth Noye is a career criminal. He's been involved in some of the biggest crimes in the UK."He has spent his life around criminal enterprises."He is a man who has been proven to be very violent in the past... there should be a great deal of supervision around him and about his conduct."
