He showed video footage along the way of Rock the CIty events.

The Murder of Daniel Thomas: Nobody came, nobody cared……..

From the age of sixteen, she was booted out of her own home and living in a shed in the street in River Court, Purfleet. Then onto the homeless hostel at Charles Street. For while she stayed at the home of a (then) friend until she was thrown out on suspicion of stealing. Then she came across Daniel Thomas and his flat in Darnley Road. The narrative of daily life as read out in court for Priscilla was depressing. There were no witty asides, no “Shameless satire”. Priscilla was no Morven Callar. It was a tale of skunk, whizz, sniff, puff, mandrax, white lightning, breezers, wine, fags.

Darnley Road Murder Trial: Faked letters tried to pin murder on innocent man

Final day of evidence: The inserted extracts warn Scamp not to: “Grass up Kieran Wood to CID” The letters go on to advise her that not “grassing” him up “Will save your families life.” and “I hope you said you did it. You will never prove your innocence. I know Kieran did it.” The court also heard that the pregnancy scans of twins that Scamp showed to several people had infact been downloaded from a South African blog on the internet, cut out and placed in a folder.
