Former-drug addicts and recovering alcoholics had a royal audience to hear their harrowing stories today when Princess Anne visited Bristol.
She was endorsing the work of the Addiction Recovery Agency - a charity that's marking 25 years of helping thousands of people with drink, drug and gambling problems. Many say without it, they wouldn't be alive today. Richard Payne heard one woman's story.
Princess Anne will be in Bristol later today. She'll be visiting a charity that helps people overcome drugs and alcohol addiction. She'll also be meeting staff and volunteers at the Addiction Recovery Agency and unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark her visit.
The Princess last visited Bristol 3 years ago. The charity has been helping people overcome their addiction problems for the last twenty five years.
