Heretic: What was your lifestyle like before the accusation was made? I understand you are a father of two? What was your occupation?
Warren Blackwell: Before I was very sociable. The Social Club was my local where I’d meet up regularly in the week and at weekends with friends to play pool, darts, have drinks after football etc. Although we’re not married, Tanya and I have been together for 14 years. Holly (Tanya’s daughter from a previous relationship) was two when I started seeing Tanya, and Liam joined the clan in 1995! I was employed as a factory operative.
Heretic: Did you know your accuser before she accused you?
Warren Blackwell: No I didn’t. She had started seeing Tanya’s Uncle Ian – having met him on holiday in Tenerife ‘recovering from the effects of having been the victim of an assault!’ (I learnt this after the event).
Heretic: How did you first become aware of the accusation?
Warren Blackwell: On Saturday 2nd January 1999 Tanya went down the Social Club to have a drink with friends. I stayed at home with Liam. When she came back she told me a lot of the women were talking about another certain individual, a well know womaniser. Their concerns were such that I said if you’re really worried then call the police and tell them. Tanya did – so for me it was no surprise when the police knocked on my door at 8:00am on Sunday 3rd January. We thought they had come to talk to Tanya about what had been said amongst several women the night before, concerning this other man. So it came as quite a shock when they turned round and arrested me!!
