Fred and Rose West abused and murdered at least a dozen young women and girls over two decades, with the majority of their brutal crimes carried out at their family home in Gloucester.
Here we will answer a few questions – including who is Fred West’s son Stephen, why did he go to prison and how many other children did he have with Rose?
Who is Fred West‘s son Stephen?
Stephen is one of eight children who grew up in the house of horrors with Fred and Rose West.
Stephen is twice-divorced and has a new partner and child.
Why did he go to prison?
Stephen was jailed for nine months in January 2002 for having sex with 14-year-old girl.
The sex was apparently consensual, and conducted while Stephen was working as a builder.
Stephen, who was in his early 30s at the time, was discovered after the child became pregnant.

How many children did the Wests have together?
Rose was often pregnant and was the mother of eight children.
Five of her children were fathered by Fred, while three were fathered by clients she met through her prostitution.
Fred also had another daughter, Anne Marie, from his first marriage which ended in 1971 – when the maniac murdered her mum Catherine.
He went on to have two other girls, Heather Ann and Mae, with partner-in-crime Rose — plus a son, Stephen.
Tragically, Heather became the couple’s final murder victim in 1987.
Cops discovered the couple’s house of horrors after Heather vanished at the age of 16.
The monstrous pair had strangled her and cut off her head. Her mutilated corpse was dug up at their Gloucester semi by police — who were stunned to
find eight other bodies.
