A report has been received that indecent images of children have been downloaded onto their computer. Then the social services arrive. The baby must be chaperoned 24/7. The mother cant even change the babys napkin alone. She must be under constant surveillance. The parents are forced to live apart. Neighbours see the computer being confiscated and jump to the wrong conclusions. The fathers employers, a haulage company, are informed. Workmates also jump to the wrong conclusions. Then the completely innocent and shell-shocked couple are informed that it will take up to EIGHT months for the computer to be examined by the police. The phone call that sparked this insulting and agonising chain of events was anonymous and false. Yet the couple were treated as paedophiles until the laborious process was completed and they were cleared ... as they were always going to be. PROTECTING BABY JESSICA is a work of fiction but it is based on a factual example of what happened to a young couple in the UK in 2010 when the police and social services received an anonymous and untrue report of potential child abuse. Around the main story is woven a web of sub-plots, romantic, shocking, inspiring and profoundly readable.
