Apol­ogy for our Reece story er­rors

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - ‘when I Saw The Car I Burst Out Crying’ -

Fol­low­ing our re­port last week on the death of Reece Mur­rell, who lost his bat­tle with can­cer, we wish to cor­rect and clar­ify a num­ber of points.

Reece was aged 21 and not 22, as we stated in our story.

He also died on Sun­day, Jan­uary 19, and not on the Satur­day night, as our re­port claimed.

Reece’s mother, Amanda Mur­rell, and step­fa­ther, Rob Sims, wish to make it clear that funds raised through a foot­ball tour­na­ment in Reece’s mem­ory will not be go­ing to­wards fu­neral costs, as th­ese will be met by the cou­ple them­selves. In­stead they wish any money raised to be do­nated to the Teenage Can­cer Trust at the Royal Mars­den Hos­pi­tal in Sut­ton, where Reece was cared for.

The fam­ily say Reece had achieved a num­ber of the things on his bucket list but that this was nowhere near be­ing com­pleted, with many that he was un­able to do.

We apol­o­gise to Reece’s fam­ily for the er­rors in our re­port and any dis­tress this has caused.
