Support Group For Violent Crime Victims

Two Essex mums - whose sons were both killed - are putting together a support group to help other families affected by violent crime.

Mel Hopwood and Tina Clark are trying to find somewhere to hold a monthly session in Harlow.

Tina's son Lee was beaten to death in 2007... while Mel lost her son Tommy 4 years ago when he was stabbed.

They've got the backing of local MP Robert Halfon and will also be asking local police to get involved and give talks at the group meetings.

Mel and Tina's efforts will be the 'ESSEX' branch of the national campaign group Families Fighting for Justice, which started in Liverpool.
