were in con­tact with the man, thought to be home­less, and used to bring him food.

The man was found out­side West­min­ster Un­der­ground sta­tion yes­ter­day morn­ing, the Metropoli­tan Po­lice said. A STUDY of 104,980 adults has in­di­cated that a diet high in ul­tra-pro­cessed foods could in­crease the risk of can­cer by 12%.

Ul­tra-pro­cessed foods such as fizzy drinks, pack­aged bread and cake, ce­real and pro­cessed meats could in­crease the risk of can­cer, ac­cord­ing to a new study. Pro­cessed foods make up to 50% of the av­er­age per­son’s diet in some de­vel­oped coun­tries and could be con­tribut­ing to ris­ing can­cer lev­els, re­searchers in Brazil and France found. A BRI­TISH AIR­WAYS en­gi­neer has died af­ter two air­port ve­hi­cles crashed at Heathrow.

An­other male sus­tained a sus­pected bro­ken shoul­der in the crash near Terminal 5 shortly af­ter 6am yes­ter­day.

The de­ceased, aged in his 40s, was taken to a west Lon­don hos­pi­tal but could not be saved, the Metropoli­tan Po­lice said. A yel­low air­side op­er­a­tions pick-up truck was one of the ve­hi­cles in­volved.

They are of­ten driven around the air­field at high speed by Heathrow staff car­ry­ing out tasks such as di­rect­ing air­craft and in­spect­ing the run­ways.

A BA spokes­woman said: AN “EVIL” builder has been jailed for at least 40 years for ab­duct­ing, rap­ing and cut­ting the throats of two young women, killing one and se­ri­ously in­jur­ing the other.

Mu­jahid Ar­shid, 33, hatched his mur­der­ous plot af­ter be­com­ing fix­ated with his 20-year-old niece, Ce­line Dookhran, and the sur­viv­ing vic­tim, who can­not be iden­ti­fied. In July last year, he at­tacked them at a house he was ren­o­vat­ing in Kingston, south-west Lon­don, and stuffed Ms Dookhran’s body in a freezer.

Fol­low­ing a trial at the Old Bai­ley, Ar­shid was found guilty of mur­der, at­tempted mur­der, rape of both women and their kid­nap. In a vic­tim im­pact state­ment, Ms Dookhran’s mother Iman Naeem said: “She fell vic­tim to pure evil. The dis­gust­ing and sense­less ac­tions of Mu­jahid Ar­shid de­prived Ce­line of a great fu­ture where she could go on to fur­ther her am­bi­tions.”

The killer was also con­victed of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing the sur­viv­ing vic­tim when she was 13.

As he was con­victed af­ter 14 hours of de­lib­er­a­tions, Ms Dookhran’s fam­ily shouted: “Yes”.

Ar­shid ranted in the dock, say­ing: “(The “We are deeply sad­dened by this tragic in­ci­dent and are of­fer­ing our full care and sup­port to his fam­ily and col­leagues.”

A Heathrow spokes­woman added: “Our deep­est con­do­lences go to the fam­ily and friends af­fected by this ac­ci­dent. We will be fully co­op­er­at­ing with the po­lice in sur­vivor) killed all of them. She’s lied to you.”

The woman wept in court, but ap­pealed for oth­ers to re­main calm and hold back their emo­tions.

Labourer Vin­cent Tappu, 28, of Ac­ton, west Lon­don, who also stood trial, was ac­quit­ted of all charges against him, and Ar­shid was ac­quit­ted of pos­sess­ing a Taser.

Mr Jus­tice Edis said Ar­shid was an “ex­tremely dan­ger­ous man” as he handed him four life sen­tences.

The judge dis­missed his de­fence that the sur­viv­ing woman was re­spon­si­ble for the killing as “ab­surd”.

In a vic­tim state­ment, the woman said she and Ms Dookhran were “in­sep­a­ra­ble” the in­ves­ti­ga­tion which will fol­low.”

The Health and Safety Ex­ec­u­tive was in­formed and of­fi­cers from the Metropoli­tan Po­lice’s se­ri­ous col­li­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion unit went to the scene. No ar­rests were made.

At least 20 BA flights from Terminal 5 were de­layed fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent. friends. She said: “On July 19, 2017, that sick man took an­other even more de­praved step in af­fect­ing my life.

“Hear­ing the help­less screams and see­ing the fear in Ce­line’s eyes that day. The ter­ri­fy­ing vi­sions and muf­fling sounds will never go away.”

In the weeks lead­ing up to the killing, he car­ried out re­search on the in­ter­net and was in­spired by acid bath killer John Ge­orge Haigh, who was hanged in 1949 for mur­der­ing six peo­ple.

Ar­shid bought a freezer for the Kingston house to hide the bod­ies so they would not be found un­til long af­ter he had fled the coun­try.

He seized his op­por­tu­nity when Ms Dookhran’s fam­ily tried to force her to split from her boyfriend, leav­ing her “dis­traught”.

He bound and gagged the women and bun­dled them into his pick-up truck the next day.

He raped both women in turn at the Kingston house be­fore slash­ing Ms Dookhran’s throat in the bath­room.

The se­cond woman was badly in­jured but man­aged to es­cape by talk­ing Ar­shid round.
