The Partners

The shocking truth, in depth life stories, contact details, photos, and everything! (Well, the photos, anyway)...

In the name of common decency we have withheld photographs from the site for as long as possible, feeling that this could simply be too disturbing for some visitors. Unfortunately, we could prevent this no more, and photographs have now crept into this site. Those of a nervous disposition should immediately return to our home page. Stronger characters may feel brave enough to look below, but we accept no liability for prolonged viewing of the following shocking images.
