Pete Weatherby QC on BBC Radio 4: One Night in March, Tuesday 4 May 2021 at 8pm

30 April 2021

In March 2012, Anthony Grainger was shot dead by armed officers from the Tactical Firearms Unit of Greater Manchester Police as he sat in the driver’s seat of a stationary car in a car park in Culcheth, Cheshire. Anthony and two other men in the car with him were unarmed.

In 2019, the Report of the Anthony Grainger Inquiry was published and in it, the Inquiry Chair, Judge Thomas Teague QC, found Greater Manchester Police were ‘to blame’ for Anthony’s death and that the police operation breached Article 2 because of a catalogue of serious failings, in particular by senior commanders.

Featuring Garden Court North’s Pete Weatherby QC, who represented Anthony’s partner at the Inquiry, BBC Radio 4’s ‘One Night in March’ will ask why Anthony’s family are still fighting for accountability?
