Sky News published this video item, entitled “Wayne Couzens set for sentencing as police boss condemns his lies” – below is their description.

Wayne Couzens has pleaded guilty to the murder of Sarah Everard.

The 48-year-old firearms-trained parliamentary and diplomatic protection officer raped and strangled

Ms Everard, who vanished walking home before her body was found soon after.

In June, police revealed that the cause of death was “compression of the neck”.

After court, Sky’s crime correspondent Martin Brunt said it is still unknown what drove Couzens to commit the killing, who he said kept his head bowed and “appeared to be shaking, perhaps even sobbing at one point” as he whispered his plea during the 20-minute hearing.
