Anne couldn't hold back the tears as she told LBC the pain of losing your son to knife crime never goes away. She said: "12 years on and it's still as raw as it was then.
"People say they can imagine what we go through, but no one knows. It's something you don't get over at all.
"The pain that comes across you when you see these families, these people who it is happening to now. Something's got to be done.
"You live through hell. You don't know how you're going to live your life. At the time, you think you don't even want to be here.
"Until it's happened to you, you just don't know."
