defend themselves. This report from Neil Bradford.

:00:36.:00:41.

They were caught on camera covering the tracks of a serial killer.

Standing is Gary Stretch. At the pump is Leslie Layton. He's filling

to one of the victims. Inside and out of sight was Joanna Dennehy

:01:01.:01:06.

described a woman with a search for blood. Kevin Lee was her landlord

:01:07.:01:11.

and lover. He was the second victim. Today his family gave their verdict.

:01:12.:01:18.

Kevin was so full of life. Life is very dull without him. Joanna

:01:19.:01:24.

Dennehy has taken over our lives and callously created a whole that

:01:25.:01:29.

cannot be filled. The killing spree began in March last year. Dennehy

:01:30.:01:33.

knew each of her victims, stabbing them through the heart. The first, a

:01:34.:01:38.

friend, a Polish worker Lukasz Slaboszewski. She enticed him by

:01:39.:01:43.

text. Ten days later, Kevin Lee. On the same day she murdered her

:01:44.:01:49.

housemate John Chapman. Helped by Stretch and Layton, the bodies were

:01:50.:01:51.

dumped in ditches around Peterborough. They then went on the

:01:52.:01:58.

run. The court was told it was an unholy union. They headed for

:01:59.:02:03.

Hereford. This is Dennehy buying cigarettes just before what she

:02:04.:02:08.

called having her fun. On this occasion, two random knife attacks.

:02:09.:02:13.

The man with her is Mark Lloyd, a friend of Gary Stretch. He was in

:02:14.:02:18.

the car at the time. Gary motioned through the window like this. I saw

:02:19.:02:23.

a bloke walking across the road with a dog. He slammed the brakes on. Joe

:02:24.:02:34.

was out the door. The first was Robin Barraza. Dennehy said I will

:02:35.:02:38.

kill you. Ten minutes later she attacked John Rogers. It was a

:02:39.:02:47.

vicious and sustain the lack passion sustained attack. I would love to

:02:48.:02:55.

hear their story in the future. When you look at the extent and the

:02:56.:02:59.

disruption she has brought people's lives, she owes somebody an

:03:00.:03:04.

explanation about why she decided to do that over a 14 day period. Gary

:03:05.:03:10.

Stretch told the witness I am a professional burglar, not a

:03:11.:03:14.

murderer. Leslie Layton was described as a petty thief. But they

:03:15.:03:19.

were willing partners in DennehyDennehy's ten day killing

:03:20.:03:22.

spree began in Peterborough on the 19th March.

's desire for violence. Three men stabbed to death. Two

:03:24.:03:31.

others seriously wounded. Her sister says she still cannot believe what

:03:32.:03:34.

happened, but hopes her sibling never sees daylight again. So what

:03:35.:03:37.

turned this sweet`faced schoolgirl into a cold blooded killer? Our home

:03:38.:03:40.

affairs correspondent Sally Chidzoy has this report.

:03:41.:03:47.

Killing men was Joanna Dennehy's idea of fun. She plunged this knife

:03:48.:03:51.

into the hearts of three men and tried to kill two more. There was a

:03:52.:03:57.

girl we loved and then turned into a monster. I do not think you can

:03:58.:04:02.

describe it any other way. Joanna Dennehy the killer with a

:04:03.:04:07.

psychopathic disorder and the little girl she once was, growing up in a

:04:08.:04:10.

comfortable home in this street in Hertfordshire. Her family says she

:04:11.:04:14.

was a well`behaved and bright child but as a teenager she turned her

:04:15.:04:20.

back on them and moved out. She had two children but separated from

:04:21.:04:24.

their father. She turned to drugs and alcohol and was a familiar sight

:04:25.:04:28.

on the streets of Peterborough. She has a history of self harming and

:04:29.:04:32.

cut herself across her stomach and arms. She spent time in prison for

:04:33.:04:35.

petty crime. In March last year, she petty crime. In March last year, she

started her killing spree. Her mission, to murder men. It was here

She phoned seven foot Gary Stretch and he and Leslie Layton helped her

:05:31.:05:35.

this estate in Kings Lynn. She wanted to see an old prison friend.

:05:36.:05:39.

Also in the house was plumber Sean Keeble. He said she was ecstatic

:05:40.:05:45.

when she saw a TV report saying she was wanted for murder. She had the

:05:46.:05:50.

remain in our hands and was jumping up and down, really happy, that she

:05:51.:05:55.

had killed three people. I said, don't you feel bad? She laughed and

:05:56.:06:05.

said No. They headed for the West Midlands and Dennehy and Stretch

:06:06.:06:10.

were pictured holding hands at a service station. Then she stabbed

:06:11.:06:16.

two more men who miraculously survived. John Rogers was out

:06:17.:06:22.

walking his dog when Dennehy stabbed him 40 times. The macro she said,

:06:23.:06:26.

you are bleeding, I had better do some more. I was just waiting for it

:06:27.:06:33.

to stop really. When it did finally stop I just thought, this is it,

to stop really. When it did finally stop I just thought, this is it I'm

stop I just thought, this is it, I'm going to die. Short time later,

:06:36.:06:43.

Dennehy and Stretch were arrested. Her so`called fun was over.

:06:44.:06:47.

There's comprehensive coverage of this story online at

:06:48.:06:49.

bbc.co.uk/cambridgeshire and on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's breakfast

:06:50.:06:51.

show tomorrow morning with Paul Stainton.

:06:52.:06:55.

There are fears of further flooding after high winds and heavy rain

:06:56.:06:58.

struck this afternoon and this evening. It's caused disruption to

:06:59.:07:02.

the East Coast Mainline and to services from Milton Keynes on the

:07:03.:07:06.

West Coast Main Line. The Environment Agency, meanwhile, is

:07:07.:07:13.

warning us to be on our guard. I think worst`case for us, between

:07:14.:07:16.

now and Friday, we could see the same rainfall as last Thursday where

:07:17.:07:22.

we could go back to the situation where the rivers are very high but

:07:23.:07:26.

we are coping with getting the water away. The key is how the water gets

:07:27.:07:31.

to the fields and rivers which could lead to flooding locally and some

:07:32.:07:34.

properties flooding where they are and tips and hollows.

:07:35.:07:38.

Three men have been arrested in connection with the murder of

:07:39.:07:41.

19`year`old Isaac Stone. The men, one aged 19 and the other two in

:07:42.:07:45.

their 20s, are all from Bedford Isaac Stone, who was 19, and known

:07:46.:07:49.

locally as rap artist Dynamikk, was stabbed to death on Costin Street on

:07:50.:07:53.

Saturday, January 25th. Bedfordshire Police are still keen to hear from

:07:54.:07:56.

anyone with information to contact them.

:07:57.:07:58.

That's all from Look East, Newsnight is starting over on BBC Two, but

:07:59.:08:02.

let's finish here with the weather and Julie Reinger.

:08:03.:08:08.

Hello, some showers heading in over night. Some of them could turn

wintry. Towards the end of the night, they should ease down

attached. With temperatures close to freezing we cannot rule out Frost

:08:20.:08:23.

and icy patches. The more frost feeding through. There will be dry

:08:24.:08:30.

and bright weather with spells of sunshine. A blustery day. The wind

:08:31.:08:38.

is not as strong as today. We finished the day largely dry give or

:08:39.:08:43.

take one or two showers. We have a yellow warning in place for Friday.

:08:44.:08:47.

We could see some further heavy rain, five to ten millimetres. Half

:08:48.:08:53.

an inch in places. I will leave you with the Outlook. The winds will

:08:54.:08:59.

pick up strong to gale force after Friday. Still windy

:09:00.:09:08.

Good evening. What an incredible day of weather it has been. We saw gusts

:09:09.:09:15.

of wind up to 108 mph in the West of Wales. The wind is easing down a

:09:16.:09:20.

notch or two but we still have a high-level amber warning from the

:09:21.:09:23.

Met Office for the strength of the wind over the next few hours over

:09:24.:09:28.

quite a large swathe of the UK. Northern Ireland, northern England

:09:29.:09:31.

and down across Wales, there is still potential for damaging and

:09:32.:09:36.

disruptive gusts of wind. This huge curl of cloud is bringing wet and

:09:37.:09:39.

windy weather across much of the West of Europe. It curls back across

:09:40.:09:43.

the north of the UK and that's the centre of the area of low pressure

:09:44.:09:47.

with the strongest winds just to the south of that. Let's focus on the

:09:48.:09:51.

winds over the next few hours. The ease down by a notch or two but

:09:52.:09:55.

still blustery conditions over most of Wales. High seas around the coast

:09:56.:10:03.

and gusting up to 70 mph. Easily around the 80 mph mark across much

:10:04.:10:08.

of northern England. Across the Pennines this evening and overnight,

:10:09.:10:13.

travelling will be treacherous. Wind and rain at lower levels will

:10:14.:10:14.

produce a lot of spray. You don't produce a lot of spray. You don t

:10:15.:10:18.

have to go to high up the Pennines to see that turned to snow. One way

:10:19.:10:23.

or another, further disruption to travel is more than likely. BBC

:10:24.:10:26.

local radio will keep you up-to date local radio will keep you up-to-date

:10:27.:10:29.

on where you are and where you are trying to get to. The centre of the

:10:30.:10:35.

low system moves northwards. Pretty heavy snow developing across the

:10:36.:10:38.

hills of Scotland with several centimetres by dawn. A bit of snow

:10:39.:10:42.

for Northern Ireland and wintry showers drifting across the southern

:10:43.:10:46.

counties. A risk of ice with most races are seeing the temperatures a

:10:47.:10:49.

degree or so either side of freezing. A cold, windy start

:10:50.:10:54.

Thursday but I think it be a better day. No persistent rain to be seen.

:10:55.:10:59.

There should be some spells of sunshine for many of us, as well.

:11:00.:11:04.

Does it last until the end of the week? I'm afraid not. It goes

:11:05.:11:08.

downhill on Friday. This low pressure will head our way. Lots of

:11:09.:11:13.

isobars on the chart later in the day. Gusts of 60, 70 or 80 mph, with

:11:14.:11:20.

rain spreading northwards. Significant snow for parts of

:11:21.:11:22.

Northern Ireland and southern Scotland. Windy into the start of

:11:23.:11:25.

the weekend. Saturday has outbreaks of rain. On Sunday, something of a

:11:26.:11:31.

respite. The winds will ease down and it should
