In the first episode of British Murders Season 3, I tell the story of the Peterborough Ditch Murders committed by Joanna Dennehy.

Between March 19, 2013, and March 29, 2013, Dennehy killed three men in cold blood and dumped their respective bodies in ditches on the outskirts of Peterborough.

She then attempted to kill two more men on the streets of Hereford, whom she'd picked at random, by attacking them with a knife.

As a result, Dennehy was handed a Whole Life Order on February 28, 2014, becoming only the third women in the history of the UK to receive one after Myra Hindley and Rose West.
