The mother of murdered toddler James Bulger has posted a poignant tweet to mark the anniversary of his death.

Two-year-old James was abducted and murdered on 12 February 1993 by two ten-year-old boys, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables.

Last month he would have celebrated his 25th birthday.

In his memory Mrs Fergus, from Kirkby, set up the James Bulger Memorial Trust, a charity which provides free holidays for bereaved children, youngsters who are crime victims or who have done good for others.

She's currently planning a black tie and tiara ball to raise funds for its work.
