Fred West's daughter saved from river
Anne-Marie opposes a drama based on events at Cromwell Street
The daughter of serial killer Fred West is recovering after being pulled from the River Severn in Gloucester.
Anne-Marie Davies, who has two daughters of her own, was rescued after a 25-minute operation involving a police helicopter, rescue boat and heat-seeking equipment.
The 35-year-old was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, and was later discharged after treatment.
Ms Davies has written a book about her experiences at 25 Cromwell Street, where her father Fred and step-mother Rosemary West murdered 10 women, including her step-sister Heather.
She is campaigning to stop Channel 5 from producing a drama-documentary based on events at the house.
Fred West hanged himself in Winson Green prison while awaiting trial in 1995.
Rose West was convicted of 10 murders at Winchester Crown Court in November 1995 and is serving life in Holloway prison in north London.
Ms Davies has attempted suicide in the past and took an overdose of tablets during her stepmother's trial but survived after having her stomach pumped.
