Driving lesson

The killer twin drives a brand new luxury black four-wheel drive Mercedes GLC 220D, despite his seemingly modest lifestyle, living in a one-bedroom flat in Sevenoaks, Kent

Just days after MailOnline revealed Kenny Noye had received a speeding ticket, he was seen driving a flashy new automobile worth around £50,000.

Despite leading a seemingly modest life in a one-bedroom flat in Sevenoaks, Kent, the double murderer drives a brand new luxury black Mercedes GLC 220D four-wheel drive.

Despite being an unemployed pensioner, Noye, 75, who served 21 years in prison for killing Stephen Cameron on the M25, looked like he could afford the car with a top speed of 134mph.

In 1983, a £26million Brink’s-Mat raid at Heathrow resulted in the theft of gold bars by a former gangster who had also fatally killed an undercover policeman. He was found guilty of handling this gold in 1986.

11 bullion were discovered in his former residence, but the majority of the stolen gold was never found.

For his part in the infamous robbery, he was sentenced to 14 years in prison, fined £500,000 and a further £200,000 in expenses. He also served eight years in prison.

Mercedes lists its base GLC 220d vehicles on its website for £49,465, but buyers have to shell out extra cash for higher spec variants.

Noye’s old black VW Tiguan sport utility vehicle is believed to have been replaced by the automatic diesel variant, which has a top speed of 134mph.

Noye’s financial situation remains a mystery and it is unclear how he supports his lifestyle.

He is entitled to a UK state pension worth up to £185.15 a week as a pensioner, but he would only receive the full amount if he had contributed to the system for 30 years .

Due to the fact that Noye spent almost 30 years in prison, it is unknown how much NI would have earned during his career.

He qualified for a £46 ‘release grant’ when he was released from prison in June 2019.

This one-time payment from the government is intended to help released prisoners meet their initial living expenses, including travel and food. Since then it has risen to £76.

Noye was caught speeding in his VW Tiguan on the A225 at Otford, Kent, on February 25 at 47mph in a 40mph zone, according to reports published by MailOnline last week.

He was offered the option of taking a speed awareness course or having three points added to his driving record.

It is believed that Noye chose the course because it included a lesson on the risks associated with road rage.

In 1985, Noye discovered DC John Fordham hiding in the grounds of his 20-acre estate in West Kingsdown, Kent, and stabbed him ten times.

When Noye was suspected of handling gold bars from the Brink’s-Mat raid, the officer was keeping tabs on him.

Noye and Brian Reader are charged with the murder of DC Fordham, who later rose to prominence as the masterminds behind the 2015 Hatton Garden jewelry robbery.

However, an Old Bailey jury found both not guilty when Noye claimed he acted in self-defense because he feared he would be attacked.

After being released from prison, Noye was on parole when he lost his temper and stabbed 21-year-old Stephen Cameron during a roadside altercation on an M25 slip road in Swanley, London. Kent. Noye was eventually found guilty of handling some of the stolen gold.

He escaped the country on a private plane donated by his late friend John Palmer of the Brink’s-Mat team, and he eventually made his way to southern Spain, where he was apprehended in August 1998.

Noye was apprehended after Stephen’s girlfriend Danielle Cable, who saw the murder, was secretly brought to the scene by British police and recognized him there. She’s still in a witness protection program.

In May 1999 he was extradited back to Britain and the following year Danielle bravely testified against him at the Old Bailey.

Noye was sentenced to life in prison for murder and a minimum sentence of 16 years, but was released from prison in June 2019.

One of his parole conditions includes a warning not to break the law or associate with those who had a criminal past.

Last October MailOnline reported that Noye had become close friends with gorgeous grandmother Michelle Budd, 48, who calls herself a ‘hippie chick’ and offers therapeutic horse hugs for children.

Sources say he met the divorced mother-of-three near her Kent home at a roadside burger stand.

Later, Noye was seen visiting her house, seeing the countryside with her and enjoying intimate outings to neighborhood pubs.

According to MailOnline, he even showed up at her stables, which are close to Dartford and where she introduces her horses to school groups of young children, sometimes helping them with anxiety or other emotional issues.

Many of Ms Budd’s horse-loving friends were taken aback by the couple’s unlikely bond, as they worried about Noye’s criminal past.

When he first saw his 18-year-old son, he reportedly introduced himself as “Ken.”

Noye has two adult boys, Kevin and Brett, with estranged wife Brenda Tremain.

In October 2020, it was announced that he was reuniting with Karen Bricker-Jones, a businesswoman he had first dated 40 years earlier before going to prison.

After his release from prison, he was rumored to divide his time between Karen, a tasteful mother of three, the fake four-bedroom Tudor house in Surrey and his bachelor pad in Kent.

While at her house, neighbors saw her taking out the trash and carrying her groceries.

Karen, 59, who was privately educated, reportedly paid frequent visits to Noye while he was serving his sentence for murder.

Ms Budd, a grandmother of two, identifies herself as a certified physical education teacher and equine learning coach in internet posts.

The Kent Equine Facilitated Learning Centre, a non-profit organization that promotes “relaxation through horse care”, is owned and founded by her.

Children are believed to benefit from Ms Budd’s therapy sessions by ‘connecting with nature, dealing with emotions and doing natural crafts’.

There are many images of youngsters stroking and stroking horses on his stables’ website.

According to her biography, she provides “help to those seeking support in relationships, work, progress, acceptance, forgiveness, traumatized drug addicts, and autistic children.”

“She’s all about peace and love and goes by the name ‘Hippy Chick’,” a friend of Ms Budd told MailOnline in October.

She has a kind and friendly attitude. It all comes down to being kind and exploring your inner self. However, Noye is vicious, evil, and has killed two people.

It’s hard for us to imagine them together as friends. When it comes to each person’s personality, they are like chalk and cheese. She is a compassionate person who cares about the children she helps.

When asked by MailOnline last year, Ms Budd said she was not dating Noye.

She replied, “I don’t know what you’re talking about mate,” when she was first approached.

She later admitted, “I know him. He’s a family friend. I have no comment to make, man, she added. I did not know. I must admit that I am a little surprised.

She replied, “I have no comment”, when asked how a woman who identified as a hippie felt about him killing two people.
