The son of a woman from Mansfield who died on a Greek holiday island will take part in a protest in London today.
Michael Porter's mother Jean Hanlon died on Crete in 2009. He will travel through the capital on an open top bus alongside other families who have lost loved ones abroad and say they have never got justice.
Michael believes his mother was murdered and has been looking for answers ever since her body was found in the sea three days after she went missing.
A murder inquiry was opened by the Greek authorities. But the case was closed in 2012.
There are growing concerns for a mother who has gone missing in Worksop.
Victoria Powell, 31, was last seen on Friday 3rd October.
Victoria is white, slim, about 5'3" tall, and has shoulder length light brown straight hair. She is a smoker and when she was last seen she was wearing black clothing. Victoria is mother to a toddler.
If you’ve seen Victoria please call us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
A man who punched a friend after a stag do in Mansfield has today been jailed for his manslaughter.
Scott Humphrey, 26, got into an argument with Richard Rovetto, after returning in a taxi from the celebration in Mansfield, in July.
Richard, a father of one, was punched and fell to the floor, sustaining a serious head injury. He later died at the Queen’s Medical Centre.
Humphrey pleaded guilty to manslaughter on 18 August, and has today been sentenced to four years and four months.
Over the last few years we have seen incidents where violent acts have resulted in serious injury or like this case, where someone has lost their life from something that happened in a minute or less.
Humphrey has devastated the lives of Richard’s family and he has also changed his own life forever by what he has done. By striking out and causing Richard to fall and hit his head, the tragic consequences of that night have affected many people.
