A five-year-old boy who lost both parents in an apparent murder and suicide incident dialled 999 to summon help when he found his mother's blood-stained body, police said yesterday. Jonathan Healey dialled the emergency services and asked for an ambulance when he found his mother's body on the landing of the family's home in Cardiff on Sunday night. Police said Amanda Healey had been stabbed repeatedly. Twenty-five miles away at Southerndown detectives recovered the body of Jonathan's father, Robert, a self-employed plumber, from among rocks.

South Wales police are not seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths but have issued an urgent appeal for help from the Healeys' relatives and friends to piece together the couple's last hours. Matthew Brace
