Sarah Sak, the mother of Anthony Walgate, who was killed by Stephen Port, said he would have been "proud" of the BBC's Four Lives programme.

Four Lives tells the story of Anthony Walgate, Gabriel Kovari, Daniel Whitworth, and Jack Taylor who were killed by Port between 2014 and 2015.

Port received a life sentence with a whole-life order in November 2016 for his crimes.

It was only last month (December 2021) that an inquest jury into the Met Police's handling of the murders found that they contributed to the deaths of Port's final three victims.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain Sarah spoke about her son on the ITV breakfast show. 

She said: "He was a fun-loving, live, full of energy young man and that monster took him.

"But I think he'd be really proud of this show and I hope he's sort of watching and being proud."

Sarah is portrayed by Sheridan Smith in the BBC One drama.
