June Steenkamp sees feathers frequently in her day-to-day life which have no reason to be there - and remains convinced they are a sign that her daughter, Reeva, is looking over her.

“Reeva had a thing about feathers; she loved their delicacy and beauty. I started to notice little white feathers and I’d think, she’s here. I’m sure there are lots of things you cling to in grief as signs that the person you have lost has not really gone away, and it makes me feel better to believe that her spirit is still with us.”

June, 68, originally from Blackburn, Lancs, and her husband Barry are still trying to come to terms with the loss of their beloved daughter, who was shot dead aged 29 by Oscar Pistorius, then 26, who is now serving five years for his crime, following the highly publicised televised seven-month trial.
