I did it for Dunblane, says Strictly star Judy Murray

By Beverley Rouse

Judy Murray said she hopes her appearances on Strictly Come Dancing have brought "a bit of excitement" to Dunblane.

Murray said nobody would ever forget Thomas Hamilton's 1996 gun massacre but she felt the way her home town had recovered was "remarkable".

Hamilton killed 16 children and a teacher at Dunblane Primary School and injured many more. Murray's two tennis star sons, Jamie and Andy, were both pupils at the school at the time but were not injured.

"The success that Jamie and Andy have had with their tennis has brought a lot of excitement to the town and now I'm bringing a bit of excitement to them as well," she told ITV's Loose Women.
