Harlow, Essex: Melanie Hopwood

When Melanie Hopwood answered the phone in the middle of the night, a relative said: ‘Your Tommy’s been stabbed.’
By the time she arrived at hospital, her son Tommy, 16, had been pronounced dead, with a single stab wound to the chest.
A distraught Melanie, 34, is still unsure of the full circumstances and is joining Mums’ Army to fight knife crime.
She says: ‘I have an 18-month-old baby son who won’t even remember the big brother who doted on him. I want the Government to clamp down on the possession of knives and enforce stricter punishment.’
