EDITOR'S COMMENT: Death of young Coventry brothers a true tragedy

Editorial Correspondent 4th Mar, 2018 Updated: 4th Mar, 2018


THE deaths of young Coventry brothers Corey and Casper, aged just six and two, are almost too tragic for words.

It is an utterly heartbreaking tale of loved ones’ lives lost from events that simply should not have happened.

The facts must await due process, legal investigations and the justice system.

In the meantime, we send our love and support to their family, friends and community, following last week’s horrific events which shocked the nation.

So too does the entire city, clearly.

The response of all of Coventry, as touched upon in our report on page 7, once again demonstrates the best of our city and its people.
