Miranda told Victoria that she had self-harmed, but later told Dr Taylor she had cut her arm at school.

Miranda was taken home by her father but stole Victoria’s scarf and wallet.

She soon began to stalk Victoria.

Later Victoria was stabbed to death and for a while no one knew who killed her.

Miranda was readmitted to Holby with self-harming wounds and others started to become suspicious she was involved in Victoria’s death.
