Anti-gun campaigner speaks to daughter whose mum and sister were massacred
A MAN who lost three relatives in a gun massacre has spoken to a woman who was bereaved in a similar tragedy.
Anti-gun campaigner Bobby Turnbull has gained support from Stacey Banner.
Bobby’s mum Alison Turnbull, 44, sister Tanya, 24, and aunt Susan McGoldrick, 47, were gunned down by Susan’s partner Michael Atherton, 42, on New Year’s Day 2012 in Horden before Atherton turned the gun on himself.
Stacey’s mum Christine Lee, 66, and sister Lucy Lee, 40, were found gunned down at the home of Christine’s partner, John Lowe’s cottage in Farnham, in Surrey, in February.
Lowe was jailed for at least 25 years after being found guilty of the double murder.
