Stabbings and murder in Slaithwaite

Just writing the title of this blog seems unreal.

A little boy of 4 has been stabbed to death and his 14 year old sister is in hospital following an attack allegedly by their father, in Royd Street, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield.

I lived for a while in the next street, we had our office in the next street, I knocked on every door in Royd Street at least once. In fact the MP I campaigned for lives in the next street too.

You hear on the news all the time people saying "This is a quiet place, we never expected anything like this to happen where we live" and now for a community in Slawitt, it has.

I send my prayers and my best wishes to the family and the community. It is truly shocking.
