Dy­ing teen’s 999 call was ‘mis­han­dled’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DES­PER­ATE, scream­ing 999 call from a teenage girl while she and her fam­ily were be­ing mur­dered in their home was missed by po­lice, a re­port has re­vealed.

Univer­sity lec­turer Jifeng Ding, 46, his wife He­len Chui, 47, and their two chil­dren were stabbed to death at their Northamp­ton home in on the day of the Royal Wed­ding.

Their bod­ies were found two days later and a hunt was launched for the sus­pect Anx­i­ang Du, 52, – a for­mer busi­ness part­ner of the wife.

The In­de­pen­dent Po­lice Com­plaints Com­mis­sion (IPCC) probed the way po­lice han­dled a call from the phone of daugh­ter Xing, 18, as her par­ents were be­ing at­tacked down­stairs in their home.

It found a string of er­rors and led to IPCC Com­mis­sioner Amerdeep So­mal to say: “Our in­ves­ti­ga­tion has found this 999 call was badly mis­han­dled.”
