Speaking after David Fuller changed his plea to guilty to the murders of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce, Tunbridge Wells MP Greg Clark said:
These unspeakable crimes have robbed us of the lives of two young women and devastated the lives of so many others.
I want to say that our community, and I’m sure the country, stands beside the families of the victims in their grief and their outrage.
These are some of the vilest, most depraved acts that have ever been heard in a British court and that requires a response that matches their gravity.
The families of Fuller’s victims deserve to know two things:
How this could have happened; and that it can never, ever happen again.
I have written today to the Health Secretary and the Home Secretary to ask them to arrange a public inquiry without delay.
It is beyond the powers and resources of a local hospital to conduct, and the questions that must be faced are national, not just local.
Nothing can undo the horror and heartbreak that the families of the victims are going though.
As Fuller goes to prison for what I hope will be the rest of his life, we must make certain that no other family ever has to endure what the families of his victims are experiencing.
