LISTEN: Angela Wrightson murder: Call between North East Ambulance Service and Cleveland Police released
The moment that the emergency services discovered murdered Angela Wrightson's body has been released in the form of an audio recording.
An audio recording between the North East Ambulance Service and Cleveland Police has been released today after the two teenagers accused of murdering Ms Wrightson were convicted of the crime.
A jury at Leeds Crown Court deliberated for just over three hours today after spending weeks hearing evidence in the trial of the two girls, who are now aged 14 and 15.
Ms Wrightson, who was 39 when she was killed, suffered more than 100 injuries at the girls' hands. She was attacked with a variety of weapons including a shovel, a piece of wood, a television and a computer printer.
A call from the ambulance service requesting the presence of Cleveland Police at the murder scene revealed that crews found the woman "half naked" in her "trashed house" with "blood everywhere".
At the time that the ambulance service spoke to police, Ms Wrightson's "wellbeing" was not known.
The ambulance service call operator said: "[She's] not breathing. Face is covered in blood, she's half naked. It looks like the house has been trashed and there's blood everywhere.
"Nothing has been confirmed as to her wellbeing, whether she is or isn't breathing, the crews have just arrived and are asking for your attendance immediately please."
The call was made on December 9, 2014, at 8.58am.
