Feedback from live tweeting Sasha’s inquest

In April and May 2019 I live-tweeted the inquest into the death of Sasha Forster. You can read a little about Sasha in this twitter thread here. The funding to cover Sasha’s inquest was part of an Ideas and Pioneers grant awarded to me by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, to explore the impact and future […]

Canada: Week One

I’ve chosen not to write blog posts daily on my Canadian leg of this trip, instead I’ll do a post every few days. I flew into Toronto a week ago on a fairly turbulent flight due to wind and jet streams. I was productive on the flight, met a few deadlines and was excited to […]

Record of Inquest – Danny Tozer

Danny’s parents have shared the final record of inquest from @TozerInquest with me and requested that I share it.

Pre-inquest review #JusticeforLB

I hadn’t set foot outside the station before Agent […]
