S8 Ep23: A Tale Of Two Sisters

Play episode

Anybody can make the wrong choices in life, the same as anybody can at some point in theirs find themselves on a path that they couldn’t have envisaged, through no control of their own.

And sometimes, the actions of an individual can highlight the former, and cause the latter – sometimes, as this tale from South Wales shows, due to the most horrific of actions. 

The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, involving injury detail, and descriptions of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing and or distressing, so discretion is advised whilst listening.
