PAUL Turner endured the unimaginable agony of losing his son Cody, who was brutally murdered in a knife attack following a social media dispute.

It is nine years since Cody was stabbed to death aged just 17.

While it is an agony Mr Turner still relives each day, things became even worse recently when he discovered that Cody’s killer, Cameron Schofield, could be moved to an open prison.

Since Cody’s death, Mr Turner has campaigned to warn about the dangers of knife crime and to try to stop more lives being cut short.

He wants to educate youngsters in the hope that other families might be spared the devastation he had experienced.

Mr Turner discovered that many young people carry knives to make them feel save ­— but say they would never use them.

He hopes that they will realise the consequences for them if they use a knife on someone else ­— and the danger they are putting themselves in as their knife could be used on them.

Following one talk at a college, one student came up to Mr Turner and handed over his knife.

As difficult as it is to come to terms with Cody’s death each day, events such as that must be seen as another life saved and more families speared the heartache of losing a loved one.

Mr Turner is understandably behind plans to get tougher on knife crime and limiting social media access for suspects.

It is hoped this will stop more tragedies such as Cody’s death.
