Seventeen years: The Andrew Malkinson story (Pt 3) - Witness testimony

In episode three of this investigative series, reporter Emily Dugan visits the scene of the crime in Greater Manchester. She also meets a survivor of a different sexual assault who explains how police procedures can lead to victims - through no fault of their own - misidentifying their attackers. Andrew Malkinson was sentenced to life in jail in 2004 for rape. No forensics linked him to the scene and he’s always maintained his innocence.
