Brianna Ghey’s mother fights back tears as she calls for compassion for daughter’s killers’ families

Brianna Ghey’s mother fought back tears as she urged the public to “be compassionate” to the families of her daughter’s killers.

Brianna, 16, was stabbed 28 times in a park in Warrington in February, last year. Two teenagers, known as Girl X and Boy Y to protect their identities, were found guilty of her murder in December.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday (24 January), Esther Ghey said: “I get particularly emotional when I think about the parents as I saw how they were in court and how distraught they were when the verdict came through. I could see myself in them in the way I felt when I heard Brianna had been murdered.”
