‘A bright light has been ex­tin­guished for­ever…’

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

MUM Ali­son, 45, was stabbed 40 times by her “bad neigh­bour” the day af­ter he was is­sued with a re­strain­ing or­der.

Trevor Gib­bon was handed the no­tice over claims he was ha­rass­ing Ali­son, her hus­band Cedric and their teenage son Kori in a long-run­ning dis­pute about their shared drive­way in Har­row, north Lon­don.

He once trapped Ali­son in her car and on an­other oc­ca­sion “stalked” the fam­ily and stared at them from in­side his car. Ali­son had de­scribed “con­stant un­end­ing ha­rass­ment”, adding: “It got so bad that I could not sleep prop­erly.”

In court Gib­bon ad­mit­ted ha­rass­ing the fam­ily be­tween Au­gust 2012 and Oc­to­ber 2014 and was handed a pro­tec­tion or­der.

But the next day Gib­bon at­tacked her on her way to work. TV engi­neer Gib­bon, 48, armed him­self with two knives and am­bushed her from be­hind on De­cem­ber 18, 2014.

As she lay dy­ing, Ali­son told passers-by: “Trevor Gib­bon did this to me.”

Her hus­band Cedric told the court: “Ali­son was my best friend, my soul mate, the soul of our home and the bread­win­ner to the house­hold. A bright light has been ex­tin­guished for­ever.”
