Ministers have criticised a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that whole-life tariffs breach a prisoners' human rights.

In a case brought by murderer Jeremy Bamber and two other killers, judges said such sentences had to be reviewed at some point.

To never have any possibility of parole was inhuman or degrading, they said.

The prime minister said he "profoundly disagrees". Justice Secretary Chris Grayling also criticised the ruling.

whole life prison sentences aren't about the prisoner. They're about the rest of us, and keeping US safe from them.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
