When Lightning Strikes Thrice
Following an armed robbery in Shropshire in 1984, three men were arrested and jailed. One of them, Stephen Paul Spencer, was convicted on identification evidence alone, the most notorious cause of miscarriages of justice. And the jailed man has reason to know - Spencer has been wrongfully imprisoned twice in the past.
Now new evidence discovered by Rough Justice argues that lightning has struck, wrongly, a third time. Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer JOHN SMITHSON
Series producer RITCHIE COGAN
Introduced by Steve Rider
