Jeremy Vine ‘disgusted’ with ‘lack of values’ of social media companies over stalker videos | UK News

TV and radio host Jeremy Vine has said he is “amazed at how hard it is” to get social media companies to act in response to his jailed stalker’s videos.

Former BBC local radio presenter Alex Belfield, 42, was sentenced to five years and 26 weeks last Friday after being found guilty of waging a campaign against a number of figures from the broadcasting world.

Jurors accepted he caused serious alarm or distress to two victims and found him guilty of “simple” stalking in relation to Channel 5 and BBC Radio 2 presenter Mr Vine and theatre blogger Philip Dehany.

Asked about the response of the social media companies, Mr Vine told BBC Two’s Newsnight: “I am amazed at how hard it is to get them to realise.

“So we went to YouTube and said: ‘Come on, what is going on with this guy? You can’t allow him to just defame’.

“And then we said: ‘OK, there is a libel action now based on that video, that video, that video’ – they still won’t take them down.

“Eventually I have to go through a lawyer, they take down individual videos, and then when he is convicted they demonetise him. But half the videos about me are still up there.

“His technique was to say ‘copy and share’ so you will have someone who takes his video in Moscow and hosts it. It will always be out there, I have got to live with that.

“But the fact that YouTube hosts this stuff, they have no responsibility. They don’t care. They don’t give a toss. Sorry for my language but I am disgusted by their lack of values.

“And Twitter as well. He is in prison and he has still got a Twitter account. What the hell is that about? I don’t understand it.”

Mr Vine said that Belfield had put out a video “saying he is going to be right back up and running”.

Mr Vine also said both the victims and their friends had flagged Belfield’s content in a way that was both “continuous” and “constant” and one person even went to YouTube’s headquarters to ask its reception if anything could be done.

“It’s not a mystery to them which are the problem accounts and they just need to take them down,” he said.

Twitter declined to comment, and YouTube has also been contacted for comment.

The heartbroken family, community and friends of Olivia Pratt-Korbel have shared memories of the playful Liverpool schoolgirl as they described her as “one in a million” and “a little ray of sunshine” with a “heart of gold”.

Olivia was killed by a masked attacker who had chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee, 35, into her terraced home in Kingsheath Avenue, in the Dovecot area of the city, on Monday night.

Her mother Cheryl Korbel, 46, was shot in the wrist as she tried to close the door on the gunman, who fired indiscriminately into the house.

Olivia was fatally shot by the same bullet as she stood behind her.

Teddies and flowers with written tributes have since been left near the youngster’s home, with one reading: “A precious little angel taken too soon. God bless. Sleep tight Olivia.”

More than £18,000 has also been raised to help her grieving family.

The GoFundMe page reads: “We are raising to help the family with this tragic loss. We can’t imagine the pain they’re all going through and want to help in any way we can. Let’s give this little angel the send-off she deserves.”

Flowers are left near to the scene of an incident in Kingsheath Avenue, Knotty Ash, Liverpool, where nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel was fatally shot on Monday night. Picture date: Thursday August 25, 2022.

Olivia’s cousin Luke Korbel described her as “one in a million” and “the most funniest and politest” girl who “always had a smile on her face”.

He also shared online photographs and videos of Olivia, including one of her opening a Christmas present and exclaiming: “Guess what I got?”

In another clip, he got her to say phrases at the camera including “our kid”, “cheese” and “vote Labour”.

In a later social media post he wrote: “I’m stuck in a dream… heartbreaking isn’t the word for it.”

“Hearing everyone’s stories that they had with you, seeing pictures on near every post or notification, it just doesn’t feel real,” he continued.

He added that he hoped Olivia was “riding your bike high up there just like you would of always been doing”.

“I love you cuz. We won’t stop fighting ever, forever our little angel.”

Olivia went to St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Junior School in Huyton, where she was thought of as a kind-hearted, helpful and happy little girl.

‘Four weeks ago, Olivia was in my son’s school play’

Skylar Conway, who described herself as Olivia’s best friend, also recalled her love of performing and said the girls used to play “truth or dare”.

“I’d give her a granny wig, and a top and jacket to put on, with a granny stick,” she told Sky News.

“She used to love playtimes.”

Skylar added: “She was quite small and she was funny… that’s how I remember her.”
