In December 1994, Alison was abducted outside her home by two men who raped, stabbed and disemboweled her, finally slashing her throat 16 times to make sure she was dead. No-one could have believed that anyone with such severe injuries could live but, miraculously, she did. 

In this interview, she tells us about her experience in the courtroom, during the trial and what she felt in those moments. She talks about having to accept that this happened to her and the importance of sharing her experience because it would be selfish not to.
