Madness in the fast lane (M6)

In 2008, BBC cameras filmed two Swedish sisters throwing themselves into traffic on the M6. When it was shown on BBC One, nearly 7 million viewers were glued to their screens, and millions more watched it later on YouTube.

The footage was shocking. One previewer wrote “On no account miss this documentary. It opens with what is perhaps the most extraordinary footage I’ve seen on TV”.

But this amazing footage was only part of an even more incredible story, one which could not be told at the time for legal reasons.

Now, two years later, this documentary reveals the full story of the hours just before the cameras captured that motorway footage, and the even more chilling story of what happened over next 72 hours, which left one of the sisters fleeing the scene of a crime, after she had stabbed a man through the chest.

Watched it on BBC i Player this morning.. Blimey, only 5 years!!!!
What motorway runs near the prison? (Making sure I'm no where near)...

On a more serious note.. The sentence did not reflect the crime. I don't think anybody who dealt with them from day one will ever be the same again. From the T.O's to the CMPG patrols, to the drivers who ran them over.. Especially the family of the guy who was murdered! Oh, and not to forget the guy who tried to stop her from harming herself. The only thanks he got was a belt across the head with a roofing slate! Then the silly cow jumps off a bridge onto the A50!!!!!! More inocent victims!
She needs locking up to keep the public safe! To hell with her, I have no sympathy for her! :slpe:
