Jack Williams: Hanged teen was 'let down' says his mother

The mother of a teenager found hanged in woodland says her son was badly let down by the authorities.

Jack Williams, 16, was found dead six weeks after his mother was gunned down by her estranged husband, Darren.

The 45-year-old shot and injured Rachel Williams at her hair salon in Newport in August 2011.

He was discovered hanged hours later.

A review found failings by Gwent Police and children's services to safeguard the boy's welfare.

Ms Williams spoke to BBC's Jordan Davies.
