During one incident Fiona Pilkington's son Anthony was put at knifepoint into a shed, the inquest heard. But despite dozens of calls to the police and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, little was done to help the family.Will 'lessons be learned', do you suppose?
Mrs Cassell said that at one point the council imposed a 300-yard exclusion zone for the youths around the family's house but that had failed to enforce it.
She said her daughter contacted the council four or five times and phoned police at least 10 times a year demanding help.
She said the school holidays and the weekends were the worst and her daughter constantly had the curtains in her front room closed.
Mrs Cassell added: 'On the day that they died, Fiona rang up the police and told them about the children who were walking on their hedge and she was told to just ignore them.
I doubt it:
The inquest heard that families in Barden Road were still being abused, despite the deaths of Ms Pilkington and her daughter.I don't know how some people sleep at night...
Update: Meanwhile, although poor Ms Pilkington's cries for help were met with callous indifference, the Surrey Police Celebrity Chav Squad have fallen all over themselves to contact an attention seeking D-cup sleb over an alleged incident she's sworn never to speak about:
Surrey Police have arranged for a full interview with the glamour girl about the allegations in the near future.Perhaps what Ms Pilkington needed was an agent..?
