News footage from the Birthday concert last month plus the latest update on the court case.
Sophie was brutally attacked with her boyfriend, Robert Maltby while returning home walking through Stubby Lee Park in Bacup, Rossendale in Lancashire. Sophie and Robert were subjected to a "vicious mob attack" from "a large group of people" around 1.00 am on Saturday 11th August 2007. As a result of her severe head injuries she went into a coma, never regained consciousness and later died. The police suggested the attack was caused by the couple wearing goth style clothing.
