Lockerbie bombing victim would give up millions to get father back

THE last surviving member of a family nearly wiped out by the Lockerbie bombing 30 years ago says he would swap his compensation fortune to have his dad back.

Luke Nesfield inherited a trust fund, thought to be worth up to £18million, in the autumn after he turned 21.

Both boys were awarded around £2.1million in compensation from PanAm followed by a posthumous £6.5 million payment to the trust fund from the Libyan government.

But Steven also died in tragic circumstances – after a night out in 2000 when his son was just a toddler.

Valerie Stevenson, who is Luke’s maternal grandmother, said the young farmer, who lives as a recluse just miles from Lockerbie, is still affected by his father’s death.

Valerie, 74, added: “The truth is, he doesn’t really care about the money and he’d give his eye teeth to have his dad back.
