Company boss’s wife held on suspicion of murdering three-year-old daughter

20 Oct

Bethan’s aunt Lindsay Colebourn, 35, who lives in Gillingham, Dorset, told the Daily Mail: “It is obviously a devastating time for everyone. That’s really all I can say. 

“As her father, Michael is devastated and is on his way to the family home. It’s such a tragic event.”

Mr Colebourn graduated from the University of Southampton with an accounting and finance degree in 2003 and joined Trimline in July 2015, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The company generated revenues of almost £40million in its latest financial year.

A dog trainer who two years ago trained a spaniel owned by Mrs Colebourn speculated that she may have split from her husband recently.

The man, who did not want to be named, added: “I saw the mother, Claire, and the little girl out recently and they looked happy and I said hello.”

A spokeswoman from South Central Ambulance Service said an adult patient was also treated at the scene but not taken to hospital.

The spokeswoman said: “I can confirm that South Central Ambulance Service was called to an address in Fordingbridge at 18:46 last night.

“We had two ambulance crews, ambulance officers and an air ambulance on scene assessing and treating two patients.
