Hotel receptionist jailed for murdering colleagues

A Radisson Edwardian hotel receptionist, who hid in a bed for two days after killing two of his colleagues, has been jailed for life.

Attila Ban (pictured) was found guilty last month of stabbing Tibor Vass and Alice Adams to death in the Heathrow hotel's staff accommodation.

He initially evaded police by hiding inside the hotel divan bed on which Vass's body lay, where he is thought to have remained during the investigation of the room by officials.

At the Old Bailey, Ban was sentenced to at least 26 years, reported the BBC.

He had denied murder but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
