For countless young men and women living with addiction each day is a chaotic tapestry of crime, drug taking and violence.

The well-worn paths to prison and rehab often fail to change the course of their lives and instead lead them straight back to the communities and gangs where the spiral continues.

But change can happen and hope is never lost. On this episode of Crime World, Nicola Tallant talks to two former criminals who once stood in the shadows of death but have lived to tell the tale.

The extraordinary lives of James Leonard and Timmy Long are stories of sadness, anger and resilience against all the odds. They recall how childhood traumas led them on a dangerous path into criminality and chaos until a moment of clarity brought them back from the brink.

Now, on their own journeys of recovery, the duo, who co-host the Two Norries podcast, have made it their mission to turn back to the darkness and offer a helping hand to those still struggling to get out alive.
