Susanna Reid broke down in tears during an interview with Arthur Labinjo-Hughes’ maternal grandmother, Madeleine Halcrow

The Good Morning Britain host was overcome with emotion when talking about the six-year-old, who was murdered by his stepmother and father. 

Halcrow appeared on the show to talk about how the laws around child protection need to be changed.

Describing the abuse her grandson suffered, she said: “The most disturbing thing to me, was there were new bruises on top of old, which tells me this has been going on. 

“There were yellow bruises, there were purple bruises all over his back. 

“I just saw them and imagined the pain Arthur would have been in.” 

Tearing up, Reid told Labinjo-Hughes’ grandmother that there is a ‘special place in hell’ for Arthur’s father, Tom Hughes, and his stepmother, Emma Tustin

She added: “Your strength is incredibly inspiring for people, we wish you all the love in the world.”

Hughes and Tustin were found guilty of murder and manslaughter respectively over the young boy’s death. 

Arthur died after being poisoned, starved and abused by the pair for months. 

In response to the tragedy, Boris Johnson has vowed to bring in Arthur’s Law, which would mean child killers would never be released from prison. 

The Prime Minister told The Sun: “Anyone who plans then carries out the murder of a child should never be released from prison.”
