Fuller family issue statement

Members of the family found dead in Shropshire yesterday have issued a statement.

The Fuller and Tocknell families are devastated by this tragedy. Ceri was a gentle, sensitive and intelligent man but also a very private one.

He loved his children dearly and they were such a focal point of his life. His relationship with each one of them was one of gentleness, involvement and attentive nurturing.

Sam, Rebecca and Charlie were such charming individuals, brought up in an environment of love.

We cannot begin to imagine what was going through the mind of this gentle man to drive him to such tragic actions.

We would ask all to respect our privacy at this time.

– David Fuller, grandfather to the children
