Arthur Labinjo-Jones: Sentences to be reviewed as vigil remembers six-year-old.

THE grandad of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes last night said his killers must never go free — as Boris Johnson was poised to back a sentence review.

Peter Halcrow, 61, hit out as a national probe was ordered into blunders over the tragic six-year-old.

Stepmum Emma Tustin got 29 years and dad Thomas Hughes 21.

Peter said he was “shocked and mystified” as to how social workers had failed to raise the alarm as the six-year-old was starved, poisoned and beaten to death.

But Mr Halcrow said: “They must never see the light of day again. No punishment could ever be enough for this pair.

"I have never favoured the death penalty because I know mistakes can be made by courts, but in my view they have forfeited their right to live.

“It will burden taxpayers but, as we don’t have capital punishment, they should certainly never leave prison as long as they live for such cruelty and inhumanity.”

Grieving Peter, from Dunkeld, Perthshire, added: “I realised Arthur had been killed but didn’t realise how much he suffered until the court case.

“And for the last 38 days I have been left feeling physically sick as I followed online.
