    India first befriended Lynne during pregnancy, and when the children were born, India offered to help look after both of them.

    ‘Lynne had other children and many different jobs,’ she previously told MailOnline. ‘I was lucky enough to have the space for an extra child. I had care in the home. It was easy for Wes to be dropped off at our home, which was better than him going to childcare.’

    She remembered Wesley as a spirited child, climbing on roofs with her own son, 펠릭스, becoming close friends from a young age.
