Suffolk murders 2006
Where Angels Fear To Tread
During the coverage of the Suffolk Murders in 2006, one woman became a regular in front of the television cameras and in the newspapers. She was known simply as Lou.
Lou would spend £1000 a week on drugs and turned to prostitution to feed her habit.
Many people were moved by Lou's story, but one Suffolk resident decided to try and help.
In Where Angels Fear To Tread, Frances Harper looks at the circumstances which led to Lou's predicament and tries to find a way of helping her towards a better life - one away from squats, drugs and working the streets.
The Inside Out programme was broadcast on BBC One on Thursday 21 February 2008 and will be available on the BBC iPlayer for seven days.
Here we present a three minute extract of the programme taking a look at Lou's living conditions and how she first got involved in prostitution.
