The Supreme Court has decide a child killer and rapist in Wakefield Prison won't be given the right to vote.

Peter Chester strangled and murdered his niece in the 70's.

He appealed to the UK's highest court over the right to vote while in jail, which has been rejected.

Chester claimed that EU law gave prisoners the right to vote.

Prime Minister David Cameron has responded on Twitter, saying the Supreme Court judgment is "a great victory for common sense".
