'The killer behind the UK's worst mass shooting who murdered 16 primary school children in Dunblane in Scotland in 1996 planned the massacre from his mother's bath, a new documentary has claimed.
Thomas Hamilton gunned down 16 children and teacher Gwen Mayor before killing himself in the gymnasium at Dunblane Primary School on March 13, 1996.
The massacre at the Stirlingshire town prompted further restrictions on the sale and licencing of firearms - which had already been curtailed following the Hungerford massacre of August 19, 1987.
According to the Sunday Express, a new documentary series, 'Murderers And Their Mothers', claimed Hamilton grew up believing his mother Agnes was his sister.
He was told the truth in his 20s which according to psychologists had a dramatic impact on his mental health.
Hamilton was a former scout leader and also led his own boys club, which according to the documentary, prompted allegations that he may have also been a paedophile.'
