Man's death linked to grief over loss of grandson

The daughter of a man found dead in a burning car in a North Yorkshire village on Tuesday, September 17, says her father killed himself because he could no longer bear the pain of the sudden death of his grandson eight years ago.

William Cressey, 10, died from meningitis at Darlington Memorial Hospital in 2005.

His mother, Cheryl, says her father struggled with his grief and believed that nobody had been held accountable for William's death.

Mrs Cressey was too upset to appear on camera but asked ITV News Tyne Tees to report her father's death and also her comments, which she gave to our correspondent, Rachel Bullock.
