As the sentence was handed down by Mr Justice Openshaw, shouts of “scumbag” and “I hope you die a long, slow, painful death, you piece of s***” rang out in the Old Bailey as the twisted chemsex killer was sent away for the rest of his life.
Port would lure his chosen victims to his home through the gay dating app Grindr.
He spiked them with lethal doses of date-rape drug GHB to satisfy his twisted fetish for abusing slender, boyish men known as “twinks”.
Port was convicted on Wednesday of killing Anthony Walgate, 23, Gabriel Kovari, 22, Daniel Whitworth, 21, and Jack Taylor, 25, and attacking seven others.

The jury heard how 41-year-old Port was driven to murder four young victims he spiked with an overdose of date-rape drug GHB and raped to “satisfy his insatiable appetite for sex with unconscious men.”
As Port,named by police as one of the most dangerous killers they have seen, headed for a life time in jail cops revealed they are investigating a further 58 unsolved GHB related deaths amid fears Port could have claimed dozens more victims before he was caught.

After raping and killing his chosen ‘twinks’ Port dumped his victim’s bodies near a graveyard in Barking, East London, and began an elaborate cover-up. He would fabricate a web of misleading clues for investigators, dispose of victim’s phones. He planted a fake suicide note on a victim, Daniel Whitworth, blaming him for the death of Gabriel Kovari. The two never met.
Justice Openshaw branded Port’s elaborate attempts to hide how his victims died as “wicked and monstrous lies” adding: “The defendant will die behind bars”.
Port showed no emotion as the judge outlined his “dreadful” crimes, occasionally glancing at the press bench before returning his gaze to the ground.

The prosecution led by Jonathan Rees told the court: “It is a case about a man, the defendant, who in the pursuit of nothing more than his own sexual gratification variously drugged, sexually assaulted and killed young gay men who he had invited back to his flat.
“All of the offending behaviour was driven by one main factor, namely the defendant’s appetite for having sexual intercourse with younger, gay males while they were unconscious through drugs.”
Defense counsel David Etheridge, mitigating, told the court his client “descended into a vortex” in which drug taking fuelled his private life with satisfaction of his sexual desire.
“He graduated from a fetish to a fixation from a fixation to a compulsion,” he said in describing Port as a man obsessed with drug-rape pornography, and lusted after smaller, boyish-type men known in gay slang as twinks. He even who filmed himself having sex with unconscious men.
Port was found guilty of four murders and numerous other sexual offences , including the rapes of three other men he drugged for sex – after a trial at the Old Bailey.
