But events tonight will send those odds tumbling. Kim appears to be sitting pretty until suddenly Kathy has second thoughts and asks to be allowed to give evidence again. Kim's counsel Derbyshire looks grim-faced as the judge agrees to her request.

She admits she is now unsure whether she trusts Kim. Derbyshire tries his best to rubbish this new evidence raking up Kathy's psychological problems since the crash - but it's clear the damage has been done.
