 Nestled in a small quiet village called Hadleigh in Essex, lived a simple little family. A young boy and his sister. . They both lived with their mum in a tired little terraced house that was in total disrepair. Their mum totally doted on them and although she was struggling trying to cope on her own she never showed it. Every weekend she took them for a picnic come rain or shine to the local country park that was home to an old castle ruins. The children would go exploring while their mum sat in the same spot every week taking in every inch of the breath-taking scenery. This is where they all were today. A fine spring Saturday, the sun was shining and the birds were singing their spring songs. But little does this simple perfect family know that today would not be like every other Saturday they’d known, today was going to be the day that would change their lives forever and life as they knew it was never going to be the same again.
