Product description

Product Description

Soon to be a BBC documentary titled 'Murdered For Being Different' based on this book.

"Sophie Lancaster was murdered because she dressed differently to her teenage attackers. In a brutal assault in Lancashire, her boyfriend, Rob Maltby, was also kicked and punched senseless. This is an exclusive insight into the crime by the first journalist on the scene Catherine Smyth. A mother too, her book provides a documentary of what happened from a media and a parent perspective. It details the attack, facts about the town where it happened, the court case and mass media interest and the launch of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. It also uncovers some anomalies. The police admitted initially attending the wrong park; the ambulance service has yet to explain why it took 14 minutes for first paramedics to reach the scene just a mile away."
Book Gorilla


While walking through a park at night in Bacup, England, Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend, Robert Maltby, were brutally attacked by five teenage boys. The beatings and subsequent murder made international news. This book was written by an investigative journalist who became extremely close to the families of the victims. It's a very indepth account of a very sad case.
