Natalie Esack 'A loving, caring person'

Ivan Esack is beginning a life sentence for the murder of his estranged wife Natalie and has been told he will spend at least 28 years behind bars. Esack stabbed Natalie to death in April 2012 in the hair salon she ran in Ashford, Kent.

Natalie was subjected to years of verbal and physical abuse and despite making 999 calls would not press charges against the former detective-turned-football agent.

Natalie's boyfriend Justin Khadaroo reacts to the sentencing, pays tribute to ''a loving, caring person'' and urges anyone who is in an abusive relationship to learn from what happened to Natalie.
