Church leader urges forgiveness for Maxine Carr

PUBLISHED May 10, 2004

A church leader last night called for the public to show forgiveness towards Maxine Carr, Britain's most notorious female prisoner, amid growing speculation she will be released from jail within days.

Canon Michael Hunter, the rector in Carr's home town of Grimsby, said that the former fiancée of Soham killer Ian Huntley should be seen as a victim and that there were lots of people in the town who would welcome her back.
