Josie Russell has talked in public for the first time of her love for her mother and sister Megan. Josie, 10, was left for dead by a hammer attacker who killed Lin Russell and six-year-old Megan in a Kent country lane two years ago.

Despite all the odds, Josie recovered from horrific head injuries - and has recently learnt to talk again.

Josie, who refers to her parents by their Christian names, has been rebuilding her life again in a village in the foothills of Snowdonia with her father Shaun.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I miss Lin. We used to decorate the Christmas tree with Megan and she always put the angel on the top last.

"We made things together, Christmas cards and things. I still like doing that but I miss her. We had lots of fun."
