Sherelle's story a reminder of scars grief leaves behind

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 15/08/2016

Ten years ago the talented Sherelle Duke died in a horrendous show-jumping accident in England.

This was not just the tragic loss of a brilliant talent, but also the death of a much-loved daughter, sister and family member - as our moving interview today shows.

Her mother Miriam walks past her photograph each morning and says "Hello pet." The family is still surrounded by sympathy, and Zara Tindall, the Queen's grand-daughter, who was a close friend of Sherelle, still sends a Christmas card each year. Sadly, the wounds will never fully heal, and Miriam says: "There will always be a crack in my heart. It will never mend."
