Louise's Panorama interview: What do you think?
Louise Woodward has told her story of the death of baby Matthew Eappen in an exclusive interview with BBC Television's Panorama programme.

Louise's mother says that her daughter wanted 'people to be able to listen to what she's got to say'.

And what Louise said was that she was made to pay for the death of baby Matthew Eappen:

"The mentality is that somebody has to pay. You know, and that seemed to be the problem, that, well, if the parents didn't do it, who did? There's only you left."

Matthew's uncle says the interview with the BBC has set back the family's healing process.

So now the interview has been broadcast, what do you think? Do you think differently about Louise? Have your opinions of the Eappens changed? And do you think Louise was right to give the interview?
