And in a powerful victim statement read out at Coventry crown court, Arthur’s Joanne Hughes’ grandmother said today he must be a “thriving” seven-year-old.

But she said he was defeated by the local government who refused to listen to many warnings from family members that he was in danger to his life.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson then swears that “there will be “no stone left unturned” to find out how the authorities have failed to protect little Arthur.

Joanne’s statement said: “As a mother and grandmother, I have been frustrated because my sole purpose is to keep my loved ones safe and ensure their lives are filled with nothing but water. filled with love, happiness and contentment.

“We as a family emphasize that Arthur will be alive today, a happy, fulfilled 7 year old boy growing up and given the opportunity to reach his full potential throughout his life, if Tom hadn’t met Emma Tustin.

“We believe this now and forever more.”

Arthur died after being brutally beaten to the walls and concrete floor by Tustin in the halls of her council home in Solihull, West Mids, on June 16 last year.

Jobless Tustin, 32, who is pregnant with Hughes’ child, told police the boy had injured himself.

She took a picture of the youngster as he lay dying – and then took more 12 minutes dial 999.

Hughes, 29, a failed football coach turned plasterer, was charged with encouraging the murder, including a text message to her 18 hours earlier telling her to “finish him.” “.

We as a family emphasize that Arthur would be alive today, a happy, fulfilled, growing seven-year-old boy with the opportunity to reach his full potential throughout his life, if Tom did not meet Emma Tustin.

Joanne Hughes

Arthur died in hospital of a brain bleed in the early hours of June 17 – when doctors noticed 130 areas of bruising on his body.

He also had so much salt in him that the doctors thought their machines were broken.

In her statement, Joanne, 54, said: “I have also noticed the complete lack of remorse through this trial demonstrated by the Miss Tustin.

“I haven’t heard any evidence of her asking about Arthur or his condition – just her utter contempt and inconvenience for the situation.”

Arthur’s family raised concerns with Council of Solihull social services two months before his death.

But after a home visit by social services, no further action was taken.

Two social workers claimed they could not see the large bruises taken by Joanne on Arthur’s back 25 hours earlier.

West Midlands Police also closed a log after Arthur’s uncle sent a picture of bruises to an officer.

After the couple met on a dating site, Hughes moved in with Arthur at Tustin’s home when the country began shutting down in March 2020.

For at least a month and a half, Arthur was asked to stand in the hallway “all day, every day” for up to six weeks in a “fatigue mode.”

I also noticed a complete lack of remorse in the trial demonstrated by Ms. Tustin.

Sentencing, Mr. Justice Mark Wall QC said he got into trouble when two of Tustin’s stepson “Very well looked after just a few meters from where this cruelty was met”.

Mr Wall said it was “chilling” that Hughes encouraged her actions.

He has no doubt that Arthur is regularly beaten by the pair and revealed that Hughes even studies “pressure points” to cause “maximum pain with minimal trauma.”

Tustin made more than 200 recordings of Arthur in “various periods of suffering,” many of which were addressed to Hughes.

Hughes has full custody of Arthur after his mother Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow, 28 years old, stabbed her boyfriend to death in February 2019.

She was later jailed for manslaughter.

A statement from Labinjo-Halcrow read by another grandmother of Arthur Madeleine Halcrow “He knew he was going to see me very soon and he asked me how many packs of Drumstick Squashies I had saved for him,” said.

It added: ”He never got his Drumstick Squad and I never saw the smile behind his eyes. “

The court also heard Tustin aborted the pregnancy and was about to commit suicide during testing.

A protective assessment of the circumstances of Arthur’s death and involvement with social services will begin.

And the Prime Minister said: “What we have to make sure now is that we learn the lessons of that case, we look at exactly what happened, what else can be done to protect the child. that child.

“And it’s early days, but I can tell you this, we’re not going to miss a stone at all to figure out what exactly happened in that horrific case.”

Gerry Hannah, president of children’s charity Parenting Together, said: “The strong sentences the judge delivered send the right message, but we still need change. Hopefully this is a turning point.”

Olivia’s mother’s suffering

“He knew he was going to see me very soon and he asked me how many packs of Drumstick Squashies I had saved for him.

I told him he could have as many packs as he wanted as long as he ate the sausages, mashed potatoes, and peas first.

He chuckles his usual mischievous grin and says ‘OK mom, I promise’.

I never imagined I’d never hear that chuckle again or hear him say, ‘I love you mother bear’.

He never got his Drumstick Squad and I never saw the smile behind his eyes. “

Mrs. Joanne’s torture

“I have noticed a complete lack of remorse through this trial demonstrated by Miss Tustin.

I heard no evidence of her asking about Arthur or his condition – just her utter contempt and inconvenience of the situation.

However, I have noted many times that she thought it appropriate to draw attention to others about Arthur’s behavior to justify her actions.

The only regret she shows is for herself, and not once has she apologized for Arthur’s passing while in her sole care.

It is clear from Ms. Tustin’s evidence that we as a family will not have clear answers or explanations as to how Arthur died.

Another burden that we will have to carry for the rest of our lives. “
