The second and final part to ITV's crime drama 'Dark Angel' will air tonight (November 7) at 9pm.

The drama is based on the true story of Mary Ann Cotton, known as Britain's first female serial killer.

It tells how Cotton, who was originally from Houghton-le-Spring, set about poisoning her victims with arsenic over an eight-year span in an attempt to benefit from insurance money.

Some suggest the number of victims could be as high as 21 and it is thought Cotton murdered her own mother and 11 of her 13 children.
