A murderer once employed by the Duchess of York as a dresser has been freed from prison.
Jane Andrews, who worked as a dresser for Sarah Ferguson for nine years, served 14 years of a life sentence for the murder of her millionaire lover Tom Cressman.
Andrews, 52, was initially released from jail in 2015 but was sent back to prison in July last years over allegations she was harassing a married man.

Now the cold-blooded murderer has been granted parole for a second time after she was adjudged to be no longer a risk to the public.
However, members of Mr Cressman’s family are outraged that their brother’s killer has been returned to the streets.
Andrews bludgeoned her millionaire lover Tom Cressman with a cricket bat at his flat in Fulham, west London in 2000. He also stabbed him with a knife.
A court heard she murdered Mr Cressman because he had refused to marry her.
Following the murder, she fled the house and was arrested four days later.
Andrews was fired from the Royal Household in 1997.
She was jailed for life in 2001 and ordered to serve a minimum of 12 years.
One of her release conditions is she must advise police of any new romantic relationships.
Mr Cressman’s brother Rick, 66, told
‘She clearly can’t cope with rejection.’
Andrews was recalled to prison last year after it was alleged she was harassing a married man
