Bradley Lowery has grown his angel wings, our little hero will never stop smiling

Published

It is with a heavy heart and a tear in our eye that we report with sadness the passing of our little Hero Bradley Lowery. He has grown his angel wings, his pain and suffering has ended. 

Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old boy who fought cancer twice. He has not only captured the hearts of this community but everyone within the UK and across the world who has followed the news and updates.


Bradley was first diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare cancer which primarily affects babies and young children when he was just 18 months old.

Throughout Bradley constantly smiled and beamed happiness while fighting the cancer which attacks the adrenal glands which control the kidneys.

After a two year fight bradley went into remission and in July 2016 his family got the devastating news that the cancer has come back. 

His parents then launched a Facebook page to help raise as much money as they could to fund treatment abroad just as they raised the total funds needed they received another devastating blow that that cancer had progressed to the point where it is terminal.


The tragic news was announced on Facebook “My brave boy has went with the angels today 07/07/17 at 13:35, in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family

“He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed else where. 
“There are no words to describe how heart broken we are. 

“Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words. 
“Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels”
Brave Bradley captured the hearts of the nation with his fight against neuroblastoma and made friends with Jermain Defoe who played for Sunderland at the time, they went on to become best mates. 
Bradley’s  legacy will go on in the hearts of millions he will never be forgotten. 

On Thursday his mum Gemma said that her son was no longer responsive writing “Bradley has had a settled day, he is no longer responsive but we know he is listening to everything we say” 

“He is fighting so hard it’s heartbreaking for us to watch. “When the time comes there will be”


Jermain Defoe broke down in tears as he talked about their ‘special relationship’ at his unveiling as a Bournemouth player. Saying “It has been hard, because I’ve just kept this in for so long.

“I’ve been trying to be strong for my family and his family. “I don’t really know how to put it in words how I really feel, because it has been a special time having that relationship with Brad.”

Jermain says he and his family will continue to support Bradley’s family moving forward.

“From that first moment I met him, I just couldn’t believe that he was actually the young kid that was ill. “He ran over to me, and there was an instant connection.

“I knew he was going to be mascot, but I hadn’t seen a picture of him, so I didn’t really know him. “He just ran over to me, so I thought ‘OK, this must be little Brad’.

“He had great energy in the changing room and a great character.”

Our thoughts are with Bradley Lowery and his family.

We must all now allow the family the time and space they need.

North East hit by a blanket of snow many major routes covered

Published

on

Motorists are bring urged to take extra care across the North East as many major routes have been covered.

Heavy snow fall and strong winds have left the A1, A19, A66 & A1M covered in snow.

While many major routes in towns and cities have also been covered leaving many roads difficult to navigate.

Gritting across many areas has failed as the snow has created air pockets allowing the snow to rest on top.

Snow began falling at 11pm last night and is expected to continue until 9am this morning.

A number of schools, colleges and Universities are expected to announce they could be closed for the day. Make sure you check ahead before traveling.

Tweet your snow pictures @PoliceHour or add them to the comments section on Police Hour Facebook page.
