Brave girl, 6, scatters murdered brother’s ashes because mum is too distraught

This is the courageous moment a six-year-old girl scattered her murdered brother’s ashes – because their mum was too distraught.

Kyle Yule’s little sister, Aaliyah, was filmed scattering his remains on a patch of grass, before telling a young pal: "Don’t step on Kyle!"

Shortly before, the grieving youngster had asked a family member whether "mummy" would be attending the heartbreaking occasion.

After being told "I don’t think so," she replied: "Because she’s so sad?"

In response, the relative said: "Yeah."

Aaliyah’s brave mum, Nikki Yule, has been left at "breaking point" following the murder of her son in Gillingham, Kent, in October 2017.

Kyle was just 17 when he was punched, stamped on, and stabbed to death by a gang of five youths who attacked him ‘like vultures’.

The horrific killing, which was triggered by a stolen bike, followed several violent clashes between two gangs of teenage boys.

Kyle was later laid to rest at an emotional funeral.

And in tear-jerking scenes aired in a one-off Channel 4 documentary this week, Aaliyah was filmed scattering her big brother’s ashes.

The footage, from A Year of British Murder, shows the little girl standing on some grass, surrounded by loved ones holding balloons.

A woman beside her then addresses the crowd, saying "It means a lot to Nikki that all of you are here," before breaking down in sobs.

She adds through her tears: "Thank you all for coming."

The woman then opens a plastic container containing Kyle’s ashes, before his younger sister reaches in, takes some and scatters them.

Aliyah later says to her dad: "Daddy look on the floor, it’s Kyle’s ashes."

And in another heartwrenching moment, she innocently tells her childhood friend: "Don’t step on Kyle! Why you stepping on Kyle?"

Speaking in the documentary, Nikki, who is so proud of her little girl, explains how the youngster believes her brother is Peter Pan.

"Cos that was the last words he ever said to her," she says.

"He said: "I live forever," or something."

She adds: "I’ve got the boiler in my bedroom upstairs. So when someone goes in the bathroom it makes a loud noise.

"And she thought it was Kyle, she still thinks he’s in the house."

Following her son’s murder, the mum is filled with immense anger.

"I think about him more now than I probably did before," Nikki says in the documentary, which is available to watch via C4’s on demand site.

"I’ve got so much anger in me, I just feel like I’m on breaking point."

Kyle died on the operating table at Kent’s Medway Maritime Hospital after suffering a fatal wound to a major artery in his right armpit.

Victor Maibvisira, 19, from Gillingham, Ephrain Akinwunmi-Streets, 17, from Sittingbourne, Kent, Tyler Ralph, also 17 and from Stevenage in Hertfordshire, Shezakia Daley, 17, from Gillingham, and Jordan Dania, 16, from Croydon, south London, all denied murdering the teen.

However, they were convicted by a jury at Maidstone Crown Court.

Jurors had been told how Kyle was heard screaming for help, and for his mum, as he was surrounded and viciously attacked with a machete.

Courageous Nikki attended the eight-week-long proceedings.

Her son’s killers were jailed for life, with Maibvisiral, who caused the fatal injury, given the longest minimum term of 24 years.

A Year of British Murder also features the families of other murder victims, whose lives have been changed forever. It explores "what the wider picture of murder reveals about modern Britain".
