Triple killer Levi Bellfield is having counselling in jail after being diagnosed with PTSD

TRIPLE killer Levi Bellfield is having counselling in jail after being diagnosed with PTSD.

The monster — the only man in Britain serving two whole-life sentences — is also being treated for anxiety and depression.

Bellfield, 53, has a weekly two-hour session with a therapist, which would cost £360 in the outside world.

He got life in 2008 for killing Amelie Delagrange, 22, and Marsha McDonnell, 19, and again in 2011 for the murder of Milly Dowler, 13.

He is being held at HMP Frankland, Co Durham.

A source said: “All his problems are apparently linked to childhood trauma.

"You’d think he’d be more troubled by his crimes.

“A lot of people at the jail are disgusted by it.

"They see the help he gets as preferential treatment.

“I wonder if his victims’ families have been offered such help?”

David Spencer, of the Centre for Crime Prevention, called Bellfield’s treatment “obscene”.

He added: “While others are dealing with the consequences of his vile crimes, Bellfield is getting taxpayer-funded therapy.

“In our under-funded criminal justice system, surely there’s better ways to spend money.”
