Susanna Reid breaks down in tears as she talks to Arthur Labinjo-Hughes' grandmother

SUSANNA Reid was overcome with emotion as she spoke to six-year-old murder victim Arthur Labinjo-Hughes' grandmother today.

Madeleine Halcrow, Arthur's maternal grandmother, was on the ITV show to discuss the laws around child protection and what needs to change, following Arthur's killing in June last year.

During the interview, Susanna, 50, was seen breaking down as Madeleine discussed the bruises she'd seen on Arthur ahead of his murder.

Susanna later told Madeleine that there is a "special place in hell" for Arthur's father Tom Hughes and his stepmother Emma Tustin, who were last week sentenced for manslaughter and murder respectively.

She added: "Your strength is incredibly inspiring for people, we wish you all the love in the world."

Arthur died after being poisoned, starved and abused by the evil pair for months and more than hundred bruises and marks were found on his frail body.

During Monday's edition of Good Morning Britain, Susanna and co-host Martin Lewis insisted that Arthur's killers should stay in prison for the rest of their lives.

Arthur's grandfather Peter Halcrow, has said that Tom and Emma should never be released from prison.

Martin said: "Do you know what, I'm normally very liberal when it comes to justice. I normally think about people should be forgiven because mercy is important and second chances are important and and I feel the same as the grandfather in the case of this little boy."

Agreeing, Susanna replied: "In this case I feel that anything that can be done to change those sentences should be done."

Boris Johnson has vowed to bring in a new “Arthur’s Law” so evil child killers will die behind bars as The Sun launched a Justice for Arthur campaign.

The Prime Minister told The Sun: “Anyone who plans then carries out the murder of a child should never be released from prison."

Tustin was jailed for life, with a minimum of 29 years, and Hughes could be out after just two-thirds of his 21-year sentence for manslaughter.

Madeleine insisted "life should mean life" after her grandson's depraved killers were locked up.

She added: "They took Arthur's life and he is not going to get his life back, he is not going to have children of his own.
