Southport MP Damien Moore has today raised the tragic case of Cassie Hays with the Prime Minister during Prime Ministers Questions.
28-year-old Cassie Hayes was killed after a brutal knife attack in Tui shop on Chapel Street on Saturday afternoon.
Asking of the Prime Minister directly, Damien said:
‘A brutal attack occurred in my constituency over the weekend in which Cassie Hayes, a young woman, tragically died. Will the Prime Minister extend her sympathies to the family of Cassie and pay tribute to the hard work of the emergency services who attended the scene?’
The Prime Minister replied:
‘My hon. Friend told me about this very distressing case last night. It is a horrific case. I extend my sympathies, and I am sure the whole House extends its sympathies and condolences, to Cassie’s family and friends following her tragic death.’
‘I also congratulate the emergency services on the action that they took. From the description that my hon. Friend gave me last night, I think we should also have some thought and care for all those who, sadly, were witnesses to this particular incident—through no fault of their own, other than happening to be in a particular premise at a particular time.’
The police are appealing for witnesses in this case. If you have any information, please contact Merseyside police on 101 quoting log 470 of 13th January, or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on 0800 555 111.
