He told her to open her mouth.
He said: 'Right, I'm going to rip your teeth out'. He started hitting her teeth with the pliers. He got the pliers on and started pulling it out. But it just snapped and chipped. Then he hit them a few more times.
He put the pliers on again and really, really pulled. He pulled Suzanne's head forward until there was a snap and he had the tooth in the pliers. He did the same again and he was laughing. David Hill, 18, was asked to "sit in" at the house, and while there heard Dudson shouting in the back room.
Hill could clearly see evidence of torture and was later left alone with Capper but did not free her. I asked her who she was. She said her name was Suzanne. She asked me if I could untie her. I said I couldn't do anything. If I'd said [anything] they'd all have got me, wouldn't they? I didn't know what to do. I was too shocked to do anything.
