– Denise Fergus, James Bulger's mother
I am disturbed that they have handed us this information on the dot of five-o'clock in the afternoon.
I got a call from the Probation Service, but they only told me that the parole has been approved and that preparations are being made for his release.
I have not been told what conditions they are going to impose and even whether he will still be banned from entering the county of Merseyside.
One of James Bulger's killers, Jon Venables, is to be released from prison.
