– Detective Chief Inspector Nick Scola, Senior Investigating Officer
I am very pleased at today's sentence. A minimum of 38 years is satisfying for both the investigating team and Tia's friends and family. Hazell will have a very long time in prison to think about what he has done.
The mother of Tia Sharp has spoken exclusively to Daybreak about her daughter's killer. Stuart Hazell was jailed for life at the Old Bailey with a minimum term of 38 years after finally admitting the murder of schoolgirl Tia Sharp.
