Alice Gross argued foreign criminals should not be banned from the UK before the 14-year-old was killed by a convicted Latvian murderer

Tragic schoolgirl Alice Gross wrote an essay in support of free movement within the EU before she is believed to have been killed by a convicted Latvian murder, it has been revealed.

Alice wrote about the benefits of European migration and discussed the push to keep foreign criminals out of Britain, saying such a move could ‘reintroduce the idea of racism’.

Just three months later, the 14-year-old is thought to have been killed by Arnis Zalkalns, who was able to ‘come and go’ across the UK border despite a conviction for stabbing his wife to death in his homeland.
