THE mother of murdered schoolboy Jay Whiston appears on Jeremy Kyle’s new show The Kyle Files next week.

Caroline Shearer, who set up anti-knife crime charity Only Cowards Carry after her son’s death, is on next Thursday’s programme about weapons.

The show shows Kyle raiding a warehouse near Croydon which has allegedly sold machetes to under-18s.

Mrs Shearer said: “It is to highlight why there are so many weapons on our streets.”

She said the charity had also received almost £18,000 in funding from the Tendring Youth Strategy Group to train more people to help in the battle against knife crime.

The Kyle Files is on January 15 at 7.30pm on ITV.
