In 2012, a judge ruled that Ellie Butler should leave the care of her grandparents and return to her father, Ben Butler. Ellie's Grandad was terrified, and it wouldn't take long for his fears to be realised. Britain’s Darkest Taboos tells the stories of some of the most shocking and disturbing crimes within families and relationships. Every family’s worst nightmares are relived and re-told in unflinching detail by those left behind – by the families and friends, and by others whose lives have been touched - like the police officers and reporters involved in the cases.
