Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

THE killer of schoolgirl Milly Dowler is due to seek per­mis­sion to ap­peal against his con­vic­tion for her kid­nap and mur­der.

Lawyers for for­mer bouncer Levi Bell­field are due to make an ap­peal ap­pli­ca­tion on Wed­nes­day at London’s Ap­peal Court.

Bell­field was jailed for life in June 2011 for ab­duct­ing and killing Milly.

The 13-year-old dis­ap­peared in 2002 as she walked home from school in Sur­rey. Her re­mains were found in Hamp­shire six months later.

Bell­field went un­de­tected un­til he was ar­rested in Novem­ber 2004 and in 2008 he was con­victed of mur­der­ing two young women in west London and at­tempt­ing to mur­der a third.
