UK Justice Secretary, Dominic Raab, has pledged to prevent those serving whole life sentences in prison from getting married, following a bid by serial killer, Levi Bellfield, to challenge a decision preventing him from marrying in prison.
Bellfield was seeking legal aid to take legal action after being denied his application to marry his girlfriend who is in her 40s, last year.
Raab called Bellfield's legal action an "affront to the basic system of criminal justice" and vowed to change the law.
Details of the legislation are yet to be announced, but Downing Street has described it as "deeply inappropriate" for such criminals to marry while incarcerated.
The Independent and The Mirror report that Bellfield has already started legal action funded by taxpayers after his attempt to marry his girlfriend behind bars was blocked.
Bellfield was joking with other prisoners that his fight was "costing me f*** all".
The Sun notes that prisoners must gain approval from the prison governor and the Prison Service before getting married.
BBC News and Sky News report that Raab has vowed to "move quickly" to prevent Bellfield's legal challenge seeking legal aid from taxpayers to challenge the decision to block his marriage in prison.
Raab argues that it is "wrong" for taxpayers to fund Bellfield's legal challenge.
BBC News interviewed Raab on the matter, while Sky News reported his comments to LBC radio.
The Times reports that Raab believes that allowing prisoners serving whole life sentences to marry is an "affront to the basic system of criminal justice" and poses risks to those they marry.
In addition to Milly Dowler, Bellfield was convicted of the murders of Marsha McDonnell and Amélie Delagrange, and is the only person to have received two whole-life sentences.
