In Ruby's name: the bereaved mother speaking out against the Prime Minister

Sky, 11 Jan 2022
A mother who lost her daughter to cancer at the height of the pandemic says the isolation during the most difficult times was "excruciating".

Emma Jones describes losing her 18-year-old daughter Ruby as "the worst pain anyone can go through" and something the family had to go through alone because of coronavirus restrictions.

She said it was 'clear' that Boris Johnson broke the rules and that he owed her and people like her an apology. She said Ruby too would be "spitting mad" at the situation - something which has prompted her to speak out.
