Compensate dead Joanna Michael's children, says solicitor

A solicitor for the family of a mother murdered after a 999 delay has said compensation should be granted.

Hywel Davies has said the future for Joanna Michael's two children should be secure.

Ms Michael, 25, from St Mellons, Cardiff, rang 999 twice before Cyron Williams stabbed her to death in 2009.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) ruled she was failed by South Wales and Gwent police.

Mr Davies told BBC Wales: "The only breadwinner of two children has been killed. Someone has to look after them and bring them up. Those children deserve to be looked after and brought up in the best possible way."
