Mum of murdered midwife: 'No-one cared because my daughter was black'

The mother of murdered student midwife Joy Morgan has told BBC Radio 5 Live that she believes the media didn't report her daughter's disappearance because the family are black.

Carol Morgan's daughter Joy was reported missing in February 2019.

Shohfah-El Israel was convicted of murdering the 20-year-old earlier this month, even though Joy's body has never been found.

In an angry and impassioned interview on 5 Live, Carol Morgan said stories about animals were given more attention than her missing child.
