THE mother of a young man mur­dered in Ash­ford town cen­tre is back­ing a new project to curb night-time vi­o­lence in the High Street.

Just more than a year af­ter the death of Ben Neil­son, his mother Bar­bara, pic­tured, has wel­comed the launch of a Street Pas­tor scheme.

Ben, 21, was kicked and punched to death in the High Street in April last year.

Now his mother Bar­bara is plan­ning to fund some of the Street Pas­tor train­ing to get help for young­sters who need it on a Fri­day and Satur­day night.

She said: “If there had been some­one like this on the street the night Ben was killed it might not have got so out of hand.”
