Diana Acklom, the mother of the United Kingdom's most notorious man, Mark Acklom reportedly claimed on October 8 that her son's life of crime is a result of brain damage at his birth. She believes that it could have been a frontal lobe injury at birth because he had a very difficult birth with a forceps and a suction. Moreover, after Mark Acklom was born, he was bruised battered. However, initially the 74-year-old mother of a conman did not think about the possibility of his brain being damaged, but later in life, the mother faced difficulty with his behavior. Diana Acklom had also dismissed the signs for a long time after real problems began to surface.
