James Bulger’s mum blasts callous thugs for ransacking grave of tragic toddler

James Bulger's grave has been ransacked by shameless thieves for a second time in a month.

Despicable yobs have stolen the stone cherub again from the tragic two-year-old toddler's resting place, reports The Mirror.

The actions have left James' mum Denise Fergus devastated, exacerbating the grief she will always carry after her little boy was abducted from a Liverpool shopping centre and then murdered in 1993.

Denise, 53, said: "To see this happen once more is heartbreaking. I’m furious that someone would stoop this low.

"It’s utterly disgraceful. Do these criminals not know how important these places are for loved ones like us?"

The family had only just retrieved the sleeping angel figure after it was recovered the first time from the other end of the graveyard.

But Denise’s husband Stuart has searched the site on this second occasion and not found it.

Denise posted on Facebook: "Once again, I’m asking my friends to help me. I’m fuming.

"It has to be the same person who took it the first time. If anyone sees this, please get in touch.

"I really don’t know why they feel the need to steal from anyone’s resting place. They simply don’t know the pain they cause."

James, killed by then 10-year-olds Jon Venables and Robert Thompson, is buried in the Liverpool’s Kirkdale Cemetery.

Venables and Thompson were convicted of murder but released in 2001.

Thompson, now 39, has not re-offended but Venables was sent back to jail in 2010 and 2017 after being caught with child sex abuse pictures.

His parole plea will be heard in coming weeks.

A parliamentary debate on whether a public inquiry should be held into James’ murder is due to take place later this year.

Denise, who has been calling for such an investigation, met up with Justice Secretary Dominic Raab this month.

She said: "Finally, we are making progress towards an inquiry. I’ve have had 29 years of unanswered questions and this is a truly momentous step towards change. And if this helps to make it easier for other families going through the justice system, I can say I've had part justice for James."
