Couple relive Jane’s murder for TV show

Have your say

The parents of murdered nurse Jane Clough are set to feature in a television series about their daughter’s relationship with her killer.

Jane, 26, was stabbed by her ex-partner, and the father of her child, as she walked from her car to work at Blackpool Hospital on July 25, 2010.

Her killer, Jonathan Vass, was on bail, accused of several counts of raping and assaulting her.

Jane’s parents, John and Penny, are to appear on Channel 5’s Countdown to Murder – a series of the country’s most prolific murders, scheduled to run in September.

In it, they are questioned about their feelings towards Vass during his relationship with Jane.

Mr Clough, of Nelson, said: “They were asking about the relationship, and things like how long they had been seeing each other when we really started to realise things weren’t quite right.

“It was a hard thing to do, and it was difficult to relive those days, especially with the anniversary coming up.”

A spokeswoman for Channel 5 said the series looked at a number of different murder cases.

She said: “Jane Clough’s was a high profile case.

“Countdown to Murder tells the story of the murderer and the victim, leading up to the murder.”
