Sophie Lancaster's mum says it's 'lovely' seeing Corrie fans 'take Nina into their hearts'

Sophie Lancaster's mum Sylvia has said that it has been "lovely" seeing Coronation Street fans "taking Nina into their hearts".

The campaigner, whose daughter was murdered during an unprovoked vicious attack in 2007, has been working with the soap on the hard-hitting storyline which sees Seb and Nina brutally beaten up.

Sylvia is hoping the story will help raise awareness of the horrific intolerance that can face people purely on the basis of how they look. "They need to see the reality behind the story, which I think Coronation Street are particularly good at," Sylvia told the Mirror and other news outlets at a press event.
