It was an event that shocked the nation. On a warm summer’s day in 1992, Rachel Nickell, a beautiful young mother was stabbed to death on Wimbledon Common in front of her toddler son, Alex. Twenty-five years later, Alex, now 27, returns to Wimbledon and reveals how he has let go of negativity after years of press scrutiny.
