The mother of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel has told her killer to “own up” in an emotional video appeal.

“You know you’ve done wrong so you need to own up,” she said.

“Like I’ve taught my kids, you do something wrong, you own up to it.

“If anyone is hiding these guns, they need to speak up because they need to be off these streets.

“No one, no one at all should have to go through this.”

Ms Korbel said Olivia was “amazing” and “loved life”.

“She was my little shadow. She went everywhere with me,” Ms Korbel added.

“Everyone she met, they all fell in love with her. She left a mark on everyone she met.

“She may well have only been nine but she packed a lot in to those nine years.

“She never, never stopped talking – and that’s what I miss the most because I can’t hear her talk.

“We were organising days out, we were on the summer holidays. We took Liv swimming.

“We went to Blackpool, just me and Liv.

“We were talking about going to get a new uniform for school but I didn’t get that chance to get a new uniform.

“But I’ll keep going, for Liv.”

Earlier, Olivia’s father paid tribute to his daughter and said her death “cannot be in vain”, as he called for anyone with information on her death to come forward.

In a statement, John Francis Pratt and his wider family said: “We don’t want another child to lose their life in such horrendous circumstances and we don’t want to see another family suffer like we are suffering now.

“Olivia’s death cannot be in vain and we want people to feel safe and be safe, that can only happen if we all come together and make sure there is no place for guns, or those who use guns on our streets or in our communities.”

Olivia was shot in her home when a gunman chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee into the property at about 10pm on 22 August.

A post-mortem examination found the medical cause of her death was a gunshot wound to the chest.

A 34-year-old man from Liverpool arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder remains in custody after police were granted an extension to continue questioning him.

Three other men have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Archie Battersbee vigil attracts hundreds of people as his mother vows ‘things have got to change’ | UK News

Hundreds of people gathered to pay their respects to Archie Battersbee, the 12-year-old whose life support was withdrawn after a lengthy court battle.

A crowd gathered with affectionate signs at the bandstand in Priory Park in Southend, Essex, Archie’s home town, on Sunday.

Cards and purple balloons – many later released into the sky – had messages written on them and were hung upon a pine tree.

The messages included “a mother’s love”, featuring a photograph of Archie and his mother Hollie Dance.

Children were in attendance and played with bubbles, and one attendee lit a purple flare as a mark of respect.

Ms Dance addressed the crowd to thank them.

“Thank you so, so much for supporting us while we were in that awful place,” she said.

“I hope you all stand by me in trying to change this law, Archie’s army, so that no more of our children and their parents go through this.”

Archie’s mother spoke to journalists earlier in the evening, describing the last few months as “really hard”.

“It was a fight for my little boy’s life. If I had to go back and do it again, I would fight equally hard,” she said.

“I will continue this fight. I have got no intention of giving up, Archie wouldn’t want me to give up, he would definitely want me to continue.

“Things have got to change.”

Archie died on 6 August at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London, after a prolonged legal fight.

The boy had been in a coma since 7 April, when his mother found him unconscious at their home.

Doctors treating him said he was “brain-stem dead” and was only being kept alive by medical interventions, including ventilation and drug treatments.

His family had fought to continue his life support treatment in the hope that Archie would recover.

Mother makes ‘desperate’ public plea to help find missing Owami Davies – as police release CCTV images | UK News

The mother of a missing student nurse has made an emotional plea for information, as the police release CCTV images.

Owami Davies, 24, has been missing since 4 July after she left her family home in Grays, Essex.

She was last seen on Derby Road in West Croydon, South London on 7 July and almost a month after her disappearance, her mother, Nicol Davies, said “it is obvious that someone out there has seen something”.

“I am begging, I am asking for the public’s help, from the people, to say if you know, if you have heard or seen her, or she passed you, please speak up,” she said.

“All we really want is to find her, all we really need is for her to come home or to know her whereabouts.

“I sit here as a desperate mother at the mercy of anyone that knows or heard something to help me find my baby, that’s all I’m asking, just help to find her.

“Or her, if she’s somewhere and hears this, to please come home. We miss her so much, her brothers and myself miss her, need her.

“We are not complete, we just want her to come home and, again, if she is listening she should know she’s not in trouble.”

Ms Davies, who is a mother of three, added that her daughter was “really happy” and had about two months left of her nursing course, with a job secured at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital.

She added that Ms Davies worked in A&E during the pandemic and that the family had planned to go to Spain and Disneyland Paris on holiday.

She said: “We had so many things on our calendar that we still needed to do.”

She added: “She’s a lovely person. Owami’s caring, she likes to help. She doesn’t hold grudges. She loves her brothers, she dotes on her brothers. She loves me. As much as we love her.”

The Metropolitan Police has released new images of the night Ms Davies was last seen in a shop and CCTV of her in Derby Road.

The inquiry is still being treated as missing persons investigation

Investigators are looking to speak to the driver of a white van, that was parked on the road.

Ms Davies was with a man and crossed the road just as the van pulled out, police said, adding the driver would have had a “good opportunity” to see both of them.

The Met Police said this remains a missing person enquiry.

A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder at an address in South Croydon remains in custody and two other men, aged 27 and 23, were arrested in the Croydon area for the same offence.
