Unlawful Killing


Listen on


Every year hundreds of people die preventable deaths at the hands of police, whilst in prison, or in the care of mental health services in the UK. Some of the names you’ll know. Most of them you won’t.  

Bereaved families are left fighting for answers, demanding justice, and campaigning for change, in a system that is stacked against them.

Drawing on four decades of campaigning and in conversation with those at the forefront of these struggles, hosts Lee Lawrence and Lucy Brisbane shine a light on injustice, amplify stories of resistance that need to be heard and explore the best way forward. 


A podcast by INQUEST, the only charity fighting for justice alongside families bereaved by deaths involving the state, including police, prison and mental health services.
