Jill died on 5th January 2017 following a subarachnoid haemorrhage.

Following her rape, during a violent robbery in 1986, Jill became a prominent campaigner against sexual violence.

On 6 March 1986, a gang of burglars broke into the Saward family’s home at lunchtime. Jill’s father and her then-boyfriend, David Kerr, were tied up and beaten, both suffering fractured skulls, while she was raped

She was the first rape victim in Britain to waive her right to anonymity.

Thank you Jill x.
