“I was based with C Division at the time and we covered the area where most of Brady and Hindley’s victims were snatched.
“We did not have many radios back then. Thousands of people were living back-to-back in large high rises and as a police officer you had to fend for yourself and learn the hard way.
“Brady and Hindley were living right in the community while they were committing these crimes. And I have often wondered how many times they could have driven past me while I was on patrol in places like Gorton or Longsight in that mini-van they used to kidnap the children.”
We are, I know not how, double in ourselves, so that what we believe we disbelieve, and cannot rid ourselves of what we condemn. (Michel de Montaigne)
