Another neighbour said: 'Something more should have been done to protect Kim and the kids. The police knew there was trouble - I’m glad they are investigating their own officers.'Words utterly fail me…
Let’s look at these two star-crossed lovers, shall we?
Kayleigh met Mills in an internet chatroom while she was in school studying for her GCSEs. Mills left his home in Manchester to move to Cwmbran and Kayleigh later became pregnant with twins.
It is understood that the pair had been dating for about a year.She was 17 at the time of her death. He is 27. And OK, it happens even with those who are in a position where they should know better. But it's strange that this case isn't getting half as much salacious headlines as last week's case, isn't it?
A close family friend said: ‘It was touch and go for a long time - they have been back and forward to the hospital for months and months. Kim was very supportive and did everything she could for her daughter and grandchild.
‘She even gave up her job as an Avon lady to dedicate all of her time to caring for them both.’My goodness, but you must make amazing amounts of dosh as an Avon lady to have enough put by to support your feckless pregnant daughter, her offspring, and no doubt the totally unemployable layabout who sired them!
Oh, wait. We’re paying, aren’t we? Again!
But don’t think me merely hard-hearted! There were victims for whom I felt a great sense of pity:
The family's three pet dogs - labrador Roxy, terrier Tiny and a Staffordshire called Kenzo - also perished in the fire.Along with the child, the only true innocents…
A spokesman for the IPCC said it had not yet had a referral but was expecting one and would begin an investigation once it had been received.Oh, I’m sure it will.
