Colleen Westlake murder: 'Life sentence won't bring my mum back'

The daughter of a woman who was murdered in Chelmsford earlier this year says the life-sentence her mother's killer received is a "two-sided coin".

Craig Bird, 32, of no fixed address, will serve a minimum of 21 years and six months for murdering Colleen Westlake and injuring Victor Westlake at their home in April.

Gemma Jopson-Smith says no prison sentence would ever be long enough to bring her mother back.
