Family speak to Jeremy Kyle about being ‘ruined’ by murder of their daughter

Published

on

THE FAMILY of murdered Natasha Bradbury spoke of their grief on this morning’s (Dec 5) edition of The Jeremy Kyle show on ITV.

Natasha, who was murdered by her on-off boyfriend Luke Jones in 2016, in Haverfordwest, was found by paramedics hours after the incident, with her young daughter covered in blood.

Jones had taken ‘up to two hours’ to dial 999.

When paramedics arrived she was ‘freezing cold’ and they discovered 53 injuries on her body.

A jury at Swansea Crown Court heard she suffered a ‘sustained and severe assault’ in her home at the hands of Jones.

Natasha Bradbury: Brutally murdered

Natasha had suffered fatal liver, heart and brain damage.

Jones was sentenced to a minimum length of 17 years in prison last year after he was found guilty of murder.

On the ITV show, her family spoke of what their daughter’s murder had done to their family.

Natasha’s sister, Shannon, said: “My dad had a phone call and the police came over the house and said she’d died. Not any of us had thought that Luke had done it. He was quiet.

“The postmortem said it was like jumping off a cliff.”

Talking about her parents, she continued to say it’s ‘ruined them’.

“They don’t talk. Mum would tell friends stuff, but not dad,” she said.

“They need to pull together. They need to help each other.”

Natasha’s mum, Tracey, broke down in tears.

Her father, Darren, said: “I’ve not spoken to anybody since. I don’t talk to anybody. There’s nothing I can say that will make any difference. It’s happened and it’s done.

“She called the night before, as they do, she was moaning about things – just life. The last thing I said via the phone was for her to ‘grow up and get on with life’. She put the phone down and that was the last I ever spoke to her.

“I’ve been with my wife nearly 30 years. We can’t even speak any more. I think we both must blame each other slightly. I think she blames me sometimes.”

Tracey said when questioned by Jeremy if she does blame her husband: “I do in a way. I blame myself as well.”

“There are in my mind, in this world, evil people who don’t deserve to live in a civilised society,” Mr Kyle said about Jones.

“You lost your daughter because of an evil man.

“Your daughter would be devastated to think you two were like this now, wouldn’t she?”

Describing her daughter, Darren said: “She was full of life. Perhaps too much sometimes. She liked to enjoy herself. She was good and kind to everyone.

“I don’t know how to fix it. Normally I fix everything. I just don’t know how to fix this.

“No way [to die] is nice but it’d be cleaner with a bullet. There were five flights of stairs, no rooms without any traces of blood. Where he chased her to the top where she couldn’t get out. Trapped. One way in, one way out.”

Jeremy added: “That man from his jail cell is killing you two. Your anger, guilt, sadness is bouncing off each other and it’s wrong.”

The family have been offered support by ITV.

Newgale: New £30m road proposed to combat coastal damage

Published

on

PEMBROKESHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL has revealed a preferred new route for a road around Newgale today (Sept 25) at an event in Roch.

The new stretch of road would begin at Pencym and end at a new roundabout near Roch.

A new route is needed due to fears about road closures during high tides and winds, as well as coastal damage caused by global warming.

Reports have suggested that the current Newgale road may not exist in 20 years times.

The new route could cost up to £30m – compared to £40m a proposed viaduct would cost – and would need funding from the Welsh Government.

A Welsh Government spokesman said: “Transport officials will continue to work closely with the authority as they progress with their studies and firm up their proposals for addressing the current problems with the A487.

“Welsh Government is open to consider an application for funding to move forward the development work.”

MP calls on Welsh Government to explain broadband delays

Published

on

STEPHEN CRABB has called on the Welsh Government to come clean over broadband rollout delays.

Minister Julie James AM, whose responsibilities include digital infrastructure and inclusion, has been urged to explain the reasons for delays to the rollout of superfast broadband to rural properties across Wales.

Last year, the Superfast Cymru scheme saw BT receive £425m in return for connecting the vast majority of premises in Wales to next-generation broadband.

When the contract ended, 90,000 mainly rural properties still had not been connected. Further details of another scheme to complete the work were due to be announced in July, but at the start of August, Julie James AM suddenly announced that ‘unforeseen issues’ were causing delays which could not be further discussed because of ‘commercial confidentiality’.

Stephen Crabb, MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire, said: “It’s simply unacceptable for the Minister responsible to announce delays to the next stage of Broadband rollout but refuse to explain why. Access to reliable, fast broadband is of increasing importance to businesses, large and small, in Pembrokeshire and I have worked with many across the constituency to improve their broadband access.

“However, the digital divide continues to exist with rural communities in Pembrokeshire suffering again. It is an inescapable fact that delivery of broadband infrastructure is devolved to the Welsh Government and Julie James AM should now come forward and explain the reasons for these delays.”
