Angel Lynn's ex calls own mother 'f***ing idiot' in call which helped convict ... trends now
Angel Lynn's ex-boyfriend called his own mother a 'f***ing idiot' in a shocking phone call from prison after after he found out she had given a statement to police which led to his conviction.
The call between Chay Bowskill and his mother formed an important part of the prosecution case which led to him being convicted of coercive behaviour and the kidnap of Angel.
Bowskill, then 20, bundled then 19-year-old Angel into a van in Rothley, Leicestershire in September 2020 at the end of their controlling relationship. She suffered catastrophic brain injuries when she fell out of the moving van head-first at 60mph on the A6 near Loughborough and has been left paralysed.
Bowskill's mother admitted to both Angel and in a police statement that her son was controlling. A new Channel 4 documentary, 'The Kidnap of Angel Lynn,' reveals the moment he phoned his mother after discovering what she had said.
He tried to force his mother to pretend she was drunk when she spoke to police, before shouting at her about her conversation with Angel, saying: 'You've told her that I've been making her do things, controlling her, telling her where she can and can't go.'
'I might have said you were controlling, because you were,' she is heard replying, before he starts shouting: 'You shouldn't have said anything from the start should you! No! F***ing idiot.
'Listen mum, you're a f***ing horrible b*****d mate, I don't know what is wrong with you man, why the f*** you would ever do that.'

Angel 'was just a crazy young girl, full of life, feared nothing' the documentary says
Earlier in the documentary, Angel's mother Nikki said she had to keep walking out of court because she couldn't bear to listen to some of the things the jury heard Bowskill had put her daughter through.
Nikki described earlier on how she had been told her daughter's boyfriend 'was a bad one and that he used to steal cars and motorbikes.'
And Angel's father said: 'I didn't really like Chay from the beginning. He didn't have a job, Angel's always had a job.
'Angel always made out she wasn't going out with him, they were just friends.
'With her first boyfriend she never used to hide anything from us, we knew where she was. But everything changed when she met Chay, she used to tell fibs so she must have been ashamed of him, probably because he wasn't a good boy.
'It broke my heart because me and Angel were always close. As soon as we found out we were having a girl I said let's call her Angel - and she's always been my angel. She was always daddy's girl.'
Heartbreaking unseen footage shows bubbly Angel singing, dancing and laughing with friends - before she met her controlling boyfriend who kidnapped her and changed her life forever.
The documentary describes how before the incident 'she was just a crazy young girl, full of life, feared nothing, if anybody could hold their own, Angel could'.
But her parents reveal how it went downhill when she met jobless Bowskill who took away her independence.
'Angel always wanted to be a forensic scientist and work for the police, she was very ambitious,' her father Paddy told. 'But when she met Chay all ambitions went down the drain.'

Nikki revealed Angel was doing a public services college course and had got a competitive place on a trip away - but had turned down the opportunity to stay with Bowskill.
'Wherever Chay went, Angel went,' Nikki said, adding that they used to go from 'hotel to hotel'.
Angel's mother revealed she had got a tattoo on her ankle which said Chay's name.
'She wanted both excitement and love, and that's probably what she thought she was getting at the start,' Nikki said.
But she revealed she was told Bowskill 'used to steal cars - and he finally got caught'.
Her father hoped she would 'see sense' when Bowskill was sent to prison, but it didn't work out that way.

Nikki tells the documentary that Angel always seemed to be running around after Bowskill, sending him money, and that she would make sure she was home for 6pm to speak to him. He would phone her on the house phone to ensure she was at home, she claimed.
'I do think she did love him, so it was abit easier then for him to control her,' Nikki said.
Friend and work colleague Sheryl told of an occasion where it was her daughter's birthday and she'd asked Angel to take her to Leicester.
But on the drive Angel noticed Bowskill behind them in another vehicle.
Sheryl said the phone calls and messages didn't stop along the way.
