The main focus of the latest episode is the trial of Anthony Stocks, who threw a boy off a cliff in Brighton.

Stocks, of Iceni Close, Goring, was recently found guilty of attempting to murder a 10-year-old boy after he tried to ‘intervene’ with Stocks assaulting an underage girl.

The 54-year-old wanted to ‘marry’ the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and had sexually assaulted her on several occasions in the early 2020s.

The boy, who also cannot be named for legal reasons, tried to stop the assaults, resulting in Stocks trying to kill the boy on one occasion and contemplating it on a second.
