The Murder of Rhys Jones: Police Tapes

Journalist Susanna Reid investigates the background to a crime that shocked the nation in ITV's The Murder of Rhys Jones: Police Tapes.
When 11-year-old Everton fan Rhys Jones was shot dead in Liverpool on his way home from football practice in 2007, the appalling crime made headline news.
Susanna Reid tells the inside story of the investigation into Rhys’ murder, which was the subject of last year’s moving ITV four-part drama Little Boy Blue, starring Stephen Graham.
The Good Morning Britain presenter interviews investigating officers who worked on the case, meets Rhys’ parents and is given access to covert police recordings, made in the homes of gang members suspected of the murder, that provided vital evidence and helped secure a conviction.
