Bereaved father's decision to forgive a lesson for us all

Editor's Viewpoint

We publish today the story of David Hulford who has forgiven a young man whose driving caused the death of his daughter.

Michelle Hulford died when a vehicle driven by Stephen Hamilton smashed into a car she was travelling in. Four others were injured.

David Hulford and his family were dealt a devastating blow, but he regards Stephen as a victim, too. Mr Hamilton told an inquest that each day he thinks about all the people involved. Mr Hulford displays a remarkable magnanimity. In such distressing situations, it is not always the case that people can see that there are often victims on all sides.
