I've been telling people in authority for 25 years not one helped me
police social services court solicitors children charities not one
single f*cking one of them would listen and do anything please help

if us didn't make it in shallow secret graves they need.

Hyndburn woman delivers next door neighbour’s baby
BABY JOY: Mum Cheryl (left) and new-born baby Kelsie with neighbour Tracey
In 1997, Church woman Cheryl Corless made the front page of the then Lancashire Evening Telegraph after giving birth to her baby son Harry in a phone box as she tried to dial 999.
Some 12 years on, the 36-year-old mum gave birth to her seventh child Kelsie in her young son’s bedroom with the help of her next-door neighbour Tracey Gilsenan.
Cheryl, who was alone in the house while her husband Anthony, 22, was at his mother’s, was a week away from a scheduled Caesarean because the baby was breached.
But, 15 minutes after feeling her first contraction, little Kelsie made an appearance.
Tracey delivered the baby with the help of a 999 operator, shortly after being woken by a phone call.
Earlier that day Cheryl had had slight pains, but dismissed them as wind. “None of my other babies were fast, except Harry.
“I was expecting a long delivery, but just at the last minute Kelsie must have turned.
“I called Tracey and sent a text message to Anthony. It was just 15 minutes later I sent another saying ‘Too late, she’s here!’”
Kelsie is the couple’s fourth child along with Lewis, four, William, three and 18-month-old Alfie.
Cheryl’s children from a previous relationship, Danny, 17, who lives in Blackburn and Sally, 13, and Harry, 12, who live with their father, are also delighted with their “adorable” sister.
Cheryl added: “Tracey was amazing with me and the kids, who were up. I can’t thank her enough for everything.”
Tracey added: “Cheryl was very calm and the operator told me what to do.
“The most frightening bit was picking her up and placing her on her mum while she was still attached.”
Cheryl, made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph when she gave birth to Harry in 1997 two weeks early in a phone box in Church Street, Church.
Harry was rescued from his mum’s leggings by his dad, Leigh Swindlehurst, before passing ambulance workers stopped to help.
Cheryl, whose maiden name is Bell, says Kelsie will be definitely be her last child.
She said: “There’ll be no more! Our family is definitely complete.
“Anthony has been after a little girl and he has her now.”
