Port was jailed in in November 2016 for drugging and murdering men he met on a gay dating app Grindr before dumping their bodies in a graveyard

Although his crimes are known as the Grindr Murders, they are also called the Barking Murders after the town where they occurred.

Evil Port was given a life sentence with a whole life order.

During his trial it was heard how he wanted to fulfil an obsession with having sex with unconscious partners, especially younger men known as "twinks".

Port drugged his victims with an overdose of GHB so he could carry out his sick fantasies.

The date rape drug (gammahydroxybutrate) is used to treat narcolepsy but it can be highly dangerous with sedative and anaesthetic effects.

Port then dumped his victim's bodies near a graveyard in Barking, East London, and began an elaborate cover-up.
