The parents of a 16-year-old schoolgirl stabbed to death on a bus during the morning rush hour in Birmingham have spoken publicly for the first time since the death of their daughter, Christina Edkins.
We'd bought Christina's prom dress the week before and recall the day she tried it on… she looked like a princess. She was our Princess. Christina was studying extremely hard for her exams and weighing-up which college to attend.
We would like to thank everyone for their kind words, flowers, teddies, balloons and candles. The support has been fantastic and shows what good, kind people there are in this world.
