• Helens Law Day of Action

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of Helen McCourt’s murder in Billinge.

    Today, I joined with Helen’s mother Marie McCourt, other victims’ families and their MPs in Westminster for a day of action in the campaign for a “no body, no parole” rule to be included on the statute book.

    We met with the Justice Secretary David Gauke and presented a petition with almost 500,000 signatures to 10 Downing Street.

    I am determined to help Marie finally get some peace from what she describes as the “special kind of torture” of knowing she could die without ever discovering the whereabouts of her daughter.

    Families from across the country who are involved in the campaign came together to back the campaign for Helen’s Law.

    It is high time Parliament delivered the change in the law that Marie and so many other families desperately need.
