Father’s heartbreak: ‘My heart is broken and I am still grieving’

The devastated father of twins who were killed by their mother has written a heart breaking poem ahead of Father’s Day, on Sunday.

Steven Ford, 35, was father to 23-month-old toddlers Chloe and Jake who were found dead on December 27 after their mother Samantha Ford, 38, killed them.

Mrs Ford drowned the children at her home in Margate, Kent, after the breakdown of her marriage.

She admitted to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and her plea was accepted.

Mr Ford took to Twitter on Friday to post new photos of his late children and published poem on Twitter, titled Father’s Day.

In his poem he wrote that he ‘wished he could turn back time’ to when he was their father.

His wife had been involved in a smash with a lorry on the London-bound carriageway of the A299 Thanet Way in Kent at 2.50am, on December 27.

When rescuers arrived, she told them to check her Westwood home because her babies were there.

Police arrived at 3:35am and found the dying infants. Paramedics tried to save them, but they were pronounced dead at hospital.

Mrs Ford later admitted she had drowned the children after the breakdown of her marriage. Pathologists believe they died on Boxing Day.
