Friends of Claire who have attended court every day of the trial broke down in tears as the verdict was read out at Inner London Crown Court.
We've spoken a lot about how much Linda and Cliff [Claire's parents] loved Claire.
She was their world. But until now we've never talked about how much she loved them.
They had one of the strongest bonds I have ever seen in a family. Her parents were her idols, and she was never embarrassed to say that or to show it.
Her parents strived to get justice for her for so long, and although they are not here to see it in person they never gave up. To finally have seen justice through is a huge relief. We wanted to make sure her memory lived on, and she wasn't forgotten."
