Matt was four years old and the member of a large loving family who lived by the seaside when Jeremy arrived. Trusted by adults and adored by children, Jeremy singled out Matt to be his special friend - but the relationship was not as innocent as everyone thought. He was only five when the abuse began, it continued on and off for more than ten years.
Matt and his partner, Carmen, join Martha to talk about the abuse he suffered and how it has affected his adult relationships.
The Family Friend: a child and the damage one man can cause... by Matt Lowe is published by Ebury, ISBN:9780091912253.
