Bendall has this afternoon been handed a whole life order for his horror crimes, meaning the twisted man will die behind bars.
The court heard how the monster stalked through the home, killing his innocent victims with a claw hammer.
It also heard how the evil killer callously called the police to tell them he had murdered four people – before meeting them outside the home to ask for a cigarette.
Footage of the hours after he killed his girlfriend, who was pregnant with his child, and three children was today played in court.
It has now been released by police.
It showed Bendall wandering through the darkness after the “brutal and cruel attacks”.
In the hours that followed the brutal killings, Bendall took young John’s Xbox from his room, called a taxi and went to exchange the console for cocaine.
CCTV captured him wandering through the streets, and getting in and out of the cab.
The court heard how in the taxi he told the driver his night was “not too bad, bit mad”.
Bendall then told the cabbie he had been “just chilling with family, really”.
At about 7am he spoke to his mother on the phone, before walking to the local shop to buy tobacco.
CCTV inside the shop shows Bendall going through coins in his hands, which appear to have specks of blood.
He then gives the shop assistant a warm smile, before wandering back home.
Louis Mably KC, prosecuting, told the court: “At 7.26am, his mother called the police seeking for assistance for her son and she told him he had got a self-inflicted stab wound, which was what he told her.
“At 7.38am, he used Connie’s phone to call 999.”
The call was played in court, and Bendall can be heard saying: “I just need to report a crime.
“Basically I need the police and ambulance now because I just killed four people.”
When two officers arrived they found Bendall outside the home, indicating he had stabbed himself in the chest.
Mr Mably said: “He showed the officers wounds to his chest to his upper right abdomen and said ‘I’m not going back to prison again, I’ve murdered four people’.”
Bendall said he “didn’t know” why he did it and he “blacked out”.
The monster told an officer he had been inside with his family, to which they asked: “Are your family ok?”
Bendall said: “No. There’s one in the bathroom, two upstairs and one in the bedroom.”
He was cuffed and told to sit on the ground outside the property whilst one officer went inside.
The cop can be heard on the bodycam footage played in court saying: “Oh Jesus.
“There’s at least three casualties. Unresponsive. I think they’re all dead.
“They’re all gone mate, they’re all gone.”
Bendall was taken to hospital to be treated for “self-inflicted minor injuries” before being moved to custody.
Speaking at the police station, he said: “The whole house is covered in claret.
“I didn’t realise what I did until I walked into my room and saw my missus and my daughter.
“Bet you don’t get four murders in Killamarsh – well five as my missus is having my baby.”
