James Bulger’s mum is the ‘happiest she has been for some time’ as she makes announcement

The mother of the tragically murdered James Bulger, Denise Fergus, has openly expressed her profound joy after renewing her wedding vows. This significant event comes after years of relentless advocacy for her son’s justice. In a heart-wrenching incident from 1993, young James fell victim to a brutal crime at the hands of Jon Venables and Robert Thompson, both merely 10 years old at the time.

However, Denise is now embracing a renewed sense of happiness and hope. “I feel the happiest I have been for some time,” she told OK! Magazine. “I am living the life I should have lived all those years ago when I was young; a life that was taken away from me.” Denise and her husband Stuart have celebrated 25 years of togetherness by renewing their wedding vows. The occasion was a testament to the resilience and strength the couple has shown over the years.

Denise shed light on their deep bond, “I told Stuart he could walk away from all the challenges that came with being with me. But he didn’t. He’s been my rock throughout.” Stuart shared a heartfelt sentiment about his wife, describing her as the “definition of a fighter” and a “loving mum and wife” when away from the public eye.

Recently, Denise has been vocal about the news surrounding Venables’ upcoming parole board hearing. He, alongside Thompson, was released under a life licence in 2001, after their conviction for James’ murder. Thompson has since maintained a clean record. Venables, however, faced imprisonment again in 2010 and 2017 due to possession of child sex abuse images. With a parole hearing scheduled for November, Denise has expressed her concerns, urging officials to remember Venables’ past actions. She warned, “He killed my son James, and has reoffended time and time again. I have no doubt he would kill another child.”
