20 years since James Bulger murdered

Denise Fergus says she wants to personally address the parole board.

Jon Venables was ten years old when he and classmate Robert Thompson led two-year-old James away from his mum at The Strand Shopping Centre in Bootle, and murdered him on a railway line. 

Thirty year old Venables had his parole revoked in 2010 and was jailed for two years after admitting to downloading and distributing indecent images of children. 

A parole hearing is expected in the next couple of months where Venables will apply to be released. Denise Fergus, 45, has told Heart: "My message to them is don't release him, I think Venables is still a danger to the public. 

"I have very serious concerns that the parole board's approach to Venables is fundamentally flawed,'' she added. 

"People say children are not born evil but I strongly believe that he was." 


After hearing that the pair may be in line for compensation after their mobile phones were hacked by journalists, the family have set up an e-petition to ask the government to make payouts to criminals illegal. Denise's husband Stuart explains.
