Stoke Murder Victim Named

Detectives investigating the murder of a woman in Stoke have named her as Megan Newton, aged 18. 

Megan, who lived in Fletcher Road, was found at a flat in Fletcher Road, at 3.20pm on Saturday (20 April). 

Her family, who are continuing to receive support from specially-trained officers, have paid tribute to her.  

“We just can’t believe what’s happened. Our hearts are broken and our family is devastated. 

“Meg was a beautiful young woman who had everything to live for. She was into sport in a big way. She loved playing football and used to give up her weekends to work as an assistant coach for the under 7s. She loved working with children and was studying sports at college as well as holding three jobs down at the same time. Meg had plans for the future – she was so independent and knew what she wanted to do with her life. We were all behind her every step of the way and would have done anything for her. 

“She was a young woman in the prime of life, so precious and loving and such a big part of our lives. We just adored her. Family meant everything to Meg and we’re all struggling with what’s happened. It just doesn’t feel real.”

Joseph Trevor, 18,  of Trentham, who was charged with the murder of Megan Newton,  was remanded in custody following his appearance at North Staffordshire Justice Centre in Newcastle this morning. He will appear at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday 2 May.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 510 of 20 April or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Longton Park (Queens Park) 21-04-2019

Here is some short video’s we took during our visit to Longton Park aka Queens Park on 21st April 2019. The videos are some of the wild life you can see when you visit the park, specifically the ducks, there is a large lake and you can expect to find lots of ducks on this lake.

For those who don’t know Longton Park it is also known as Queen’s Park, is famous for its trees, horticulture and lakes. It has a very individual character and is one of the city’s heritage parks. It houses a range of buildings including the clock tower and three bowling pavilions, and lots of wide open spaces, which are great for a day out with the family.
