The former Daily Express journalist was overcome by a cloud of poisonous gas in her bathroom and instead of planning for a future, her family found themselves planning a funeral.
Today her family are calling for detectors for the deadly carbon monoxide gas – which cost as little as £12 – to be made compulsory in a bid to stop up to 50 lives being claimed each year in the UK by the silent killer.
In the wake of Katie’s death, her family set up the Katie Haines Memorial Trust, which has set up a petition to lobby the Government to make CO alarms compulsory across the UK, in a similar way to smoke alarms.
They need 100,000 signatures for the subject to be debated in Parliament.
