Mother: David McGreavy should never be released

A ban on naming one of the UK's most notorious prisoners who killed three children in 1973 was lifted yesterday.

David McGreavy lived with the Ralph family at their home in Worcester for two years, he was left to babysit when he killed four-year-old Paul, and sisters Dawn, two and Samantha who was only nine months old.

In 2009, he was granted anonymity but the ruling has now been lifted by the High Court.

Speaking to Daybreak, mother Dorothy Urry said the killer of her children should "never, ever be released".

She said she was never allowed to go back into her home after the death of her children, and people who lived nearer her blamed her for leaving them with David, she added, "it's just heartbreaking and I have a job to go back up there to the children's grave even".
