I would like some financial redress as, had I been able to make my claim, I would not currently be facing future financial difficulties. Also my child has/will miss out on opportunities that should have been theirs.
I have heard people at work talking about this (who somehow must have access to/knowledge of this forum). They were talking about it near me but in hushed voices but I did hear what they said. It could have been an anonymous story but the determining point for me is that they mentioned the persons name - it was the name of the person I shared a house with at the time (Lee). I have never told anyone all the details of this incident - and, as I mentioned there was a timelag of a couple of years before the claim was made and so I thought I must have been gravely mistaken. So, the information cannot originate from something I have said to someone on the topic.
Also, as I was looking for this ticket all those years ago, I remember Lee sitting on the stairs outside my room and asking if I was OK and whether I was looking for something. I was quite upset/confused at the time so just responded (through the closed door) that I was OK. Sometime after that I moved out of the shared house but continued to look through my personal papers for the ticket but never found it.
Thanks. I did not realise a crime was committed until recently. Would this help extend the timings for the Limitations Act?
Would the police take this seriously? I have considered going but thought they would just laugh at this.
I understand that this is a sensitive situation. The person concerned will not want to be labelled. On the otherhand, this is seriously impactful on myself and my family and so I feel I do need to pursue this.
