Thunderclap marks tragic anniversary
THE anniversary of one of Essex’s most notorious murders has been marked by a Thunderclap.
Yesterday was the 28th anniversary of the killings at White House Farm in Tolleshunt D’Arcy.
Farmer Nevill Bamber, his wife, June, their daughter Sheila, and her twin sons, Nicholas and Daniel, who were six, were all shot in the farmhouse.
Mr Bamber’s son, Jeremy, was convicted of the five murders although he has always protested his innocence.
To mark the anniversary of the deaths, his supporters organised a Thunderclap, a social media tool which shares a message through Facebook and Twitter at the same time.
The Thunderclap, which supports Bamber’s fight for freedom, is supported by more than 200 people.
They in turn have connections to make the social reach nearly 100,000.
