Brianna Ghey and Peace in Mind Campaign logo

Statement on behalf of Warrington Borough Council, from Mayor of Warrington Cllr Steve Wright


“Today, we are thinking of Brianna, her family, friends and all who knew and loved her.

“What happened will always be regarded as one of Warrington’s darkest days.

"While today’s sentencing brings about the judicial conclusion of the matter, we know that many people in Warrington continue to grieve and are suffering.

“The Peace in Mind campaign, led by Brianna’s mum, Esther, has been a small light amongst what has been a truly dark and distressing time for our town, and is an enduring symbol that Brianna will never be forgotten.”

Warrington’s Safeguarding Partnership has launched an independent safeguarding practice review into this sad and deeply tragic case.
