– Adele Barber on making sure her attacker was caught
Speaking for the first time since her attacker was jailed last week, we hear the story of Adele Barber, who was cornered and sexually assaulted in an alleyway by a stranger.
But when the man put his tongue in her mouth, the quick-thinking mum bit it off in the hope the DNA evidence would help catch and convict the attacker. And thanks to her level-headed determination and bravery, last week a conviction was made.
Adele joins Phillip and Christine to talk about fighting off her assailant, how she has overcome the attack to become a stronger person and the importance of breaking down the taboos surrounding sexual assaults.
