Kayleigh’s Love Story

Kayleigh’s Love Story is a film about aspects of the last 13 days of the life of 15-year-old Kayleigh Haywood.

The Leicestershire schoolgirl was groomed online by Luke Harlow, a man she had never met, before being raped and murdered by his next door neighbour Stephen Beadman.

The film has been made to serve as a warning to children and adults of the dangers of grooming and sexual exploitation following Kayleigh’s tragic death in November 2015.

Visit https://leics.police.uk/categories/kayleighs-love-story for information on the dangers of speaking to people online, online grooming and to show your support for our CEASE (commitment to eradicate abuse and sexual exploitation) campaign.
