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.

Investigation continues into oil pollution along Cleddau estuary

Published

on

NATURAL RESOURCES WALES (NRW) is looking into the cause of a pollution incident that has affected several areas along Milford Haven waterway.

Several organisations responded on Friday (Dec 7) including NRW, Pembrokeshire County Council, The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), and Port of Milford Haven (PMH), after reports of oil at Burton Ferry.

Several tonnes of contaminated seaweed and strandline debris were removed on Friday while NRW sampled the site.

Clean up and investigation work continued over the weekend after more oil was reported at Llanreath, Pembroke River, Hazelbeach and Llanstadwell.

It’s thought that the pollution is a fuel oil, the source is being investigated.

So far, around 55 birds lightly contaminated in oil have been sighted but no fatalities or distressed birds have been reported. The RSPCA have checked the area.

Robert Phillips, Team Leader for Pembrokeshire Natural Resource Management for NRW, said: “Protecting Wales’ environment and wildlife is a huge part of the work we do which is why we are contactable 24/7 in case there’s an incident we need to attend.

“The oil pollution in Milford Haven is affecting a few areas and we’re working hard with our partners to find the cause.

“The recent weather should help break up the oil but in the meantime, please report any pollution incidents to our 24/7 incidents line on 03000 65 3000.”

Investigations into the source of pollution are ongoing.

Adam Grogan, Head of Wildlife at RSPCA, commented: “RSPCA Cymru officers are standing by in case any oil affected birds or other animals are brought to our attention so we can provide the appropriate assistance.

“We urge if anyone spots any bird or animal in distress to contact the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 as they are animals that need specialist care and treatment.

“We continue to liaise with Natural Resources Wales on this.”

Huge response to PATCH appeal

Published

“WE’RE going to need a bigger van…..”

That was the first reaction of Tracy Olin – manager of the County-based charity PATCH (Pembrokeshire Action To Combat Hardship) – when she saw the mountain of food products and household items assembled in the reception area of County Hall, Haverfordwest.

For the past few weeks, the headquarters of Pembrokeshire County Council has been utilised as a collection point for goods donated by employees of the local authority to be distributed to needy adults and children this Christmas.

“There was so much I quickly realised that the van we had brought was not going to be big enough,” explained Tracey who quickly made arrangements for a second van to turn-up.

“All I can say is ‘wow’ – and thank you to all the Council people who donated. Their generosity will make Christmas a little more enjoyable for many needy families.”

Council Leader David Simpson – pictured among the donations with Tracy – said that he was proud of the kind-heartedness of Council staff.

“Their response has been amazing,” he added.

All the goods have now been taken to PATCH in Milford Haven for distribution around Pembrokeshire.

Stereophonics to play Swansea gig

Published

on

ONE of Britain’s best live bands Stereophonics has announced a special performance at Singleton Park, Swansea on Saturday, July 13, 2019.

The stadium rockers will perform in their south Wales heartland to celebrate 20 years since the career milestone show in Swansea at Morfa Stadium to 55,000 people and the release of ‘Performance and Cocktails’.

It will be the band’s first time back in south west Wales since their Morfa Stadium show in 1999. This now iconic album, which was the band’s second studio release, gave Stereophonics three straight top five singles in the British charts with ‘The Bartender and the Thief’ reaching No.3, and both ‘Just Looking’ and ‘Pick a Part That’s New’ reaching No.4.

Over the past two decades, Stereophonics have played at some of the biggest venues to fans all across the globe, amassing over 10 million album sales in that time.

More recently in 2018, the band performed to sell-out crowds across the globe, including a huge 15-date arena tour, summer homecoming gigs in Wrexham and Cardiff plus headline shows at Kendal Calling, Y Not Festival and Victorious Festival.

Speaking about the latest announcement, Kelly Jones said: “Performance and Cocktails put us on the world map, and also on the TV and the Radio, which meant a lot of people went back to discover Word Gets Around and made our first album platinum! Morfa Stadium was where we set Performance and Cocktails alight, and it was a one off day that can never be beaten. It was perfect. I’m not a man that likes to go backwards, this event is merely a birthday party, so come along and help us blow out the candles.”

Stereophonics are Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar), Richard Jones (bass), Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums).

Tickets go on sale on Friday (Dec 14) at 10am via www.myticket.co.uk.
