However when the true occupant’s daughter wanted her father’s body exhumed, Harriet and Dawn’s father Will moved Malone’s body to the grounds of Home Farm.

Speaking to The Sun earlier this month she said: “You always worry that your days might be numbered.

“There have got to be consequences, whether that happens a year down the line or two years down the line, you can’t get away with murder.”
