Storyline

Wendy Grant agreed to bear a baby for the Breakspears, a childless couple, for £6500, an agreement illegal in English Law. The baby, Anna, was born with a serious but treatable heart defect, and the Breakspears withdrew from the deal. Anna was then left outside their house before dawn on a cold morning; she suffered exposure and died. Mrs. Grant is now charged with murder, the prosecution claiming that she abandoned the child knowing she would come to serious harm or die. She asserts her innocence. She admits she was angry with the Breakspears and left the baby for them to care for but that she never thought Anna would not be discovered quickly and safely collected. Written by Alan Briscoe
