Liskeard rooftop protest ends


A MAN has now ended a day-long roof-top protest at the office of MP Sheryll Murray in Liskeard over ‘injustices in the family justice system.’

Peter McMurdie, who is part of the Stop the War on Dads campaign, says he has not seen his teenage children for three and a half years.

The father of two from Looe says he has been ‘ignored’ by Sheryll Murray since she met him in December 2015.

Mrs Murray, who was in Westminster today, said she contacted the Children’s Minister on his behalf after meeting Mr McMurdie.

‘Whilst I am sympathetic to the plight of fathers who wish to have access to their children, individual cases should be dealt with through the legal system,’ she said.

‘What my constituent has done is dangerous and puts himself at risk.  It is clearly not a sensible way of proceeding.’

Mr McMurdie ended his protest late this afternoon. He said: ’I had a great reaction from so many people today. So many are victims of the family courts. I spoke to a few fathers who hadn’t seen their children for many years which is really sad.’
