Episode details

Alastair Morgan has been fighting for 34 years to get justice for his brother Daniel who was murdered in a South London pub car park in 1987. The latest setback in his quest was the decision by Home Secretary Priti Patel to delay publication of the findings of an Independent Panel into the killing and the subsequent investigations.

No one has been convicted in relation to Daniel's death, and the story sounds like a real life Line Of Duty (which actually namechecked the case in its most recent series). There's evidence of police corruption, links to Rupert Murdoch's media empire, and a sub plot involving politicians such as Patel - who was a guest at Murdoch's wedding to Jerry Hall.

In this in depth interview Alastair revisits key themes of the story, and explains the toll it has taken on Daniel's surviving family members.

Presented by Adrian Goldberg. Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
