Dark Angel... The Story of Sophie Lancaster

While returning home,Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend were subjected to a "vicious mob attack" from "a large group of people" between 01:10 hours and 01:20 hours on Saturday, 11 August 2007, at theskate park area of Stubbylee Park, Bacup. The couple were walking home and came across a group of teenagers at the entrance to the park. The group followed them, but there was no trouble until some of them suddenly assaulted Robert Maltby without provocation. When he was knocked unconscious the gang attacked Sophie Lancaster, who was trying to protect him by cradling him in her arms. Malty later recovered from his injuries but Sophie passed away a few day's later when her family decided to not continue life support.

Sophie's family have joined with UK cosmetic company Illamasqua to create this short film. Please watch this film and read all the information included in the end to learn more!
