Following the very well received BBC Inside Out programme regarding abuse at Tong Park and Kirk Levington Detention centres earlier this year which resulted in a large number of new people contacting the police, I can bring you news that the investigative journalist Gaggan Sabherwal and the BBC Inside Out team intend a follow up programme.
I hope you all are well!
My name is Gaggan and I work for BBC’s Inside Out programme based in Leeds. Last August I had left a post on this blog page about wanting to speak to people about their experiences at Tong Park and Kirk Levington Detention centres. This was for a film I was working on and I must say we received so many calls and emails from people to share their experiences. Thank you each and every one of you for getting in touch. Without your help our film wouldn’t have been possible.
I am writing to let you all know that we have decided to do a follow up film as we have heard since our film, Cleveland and West Yorkshire police have received over hundred new witness statements from people who were abused at Tong Park and Kirk Levington. In case you missed our film then you can watch it back here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WD0V-LczvsQ
I would like to hear from more people about their experiences at Tong Park and Kirk Levington for our follow up film so if you would like to have a private and off the record chat with me about your experiences then please email me your details and I will call you. I assure you whatever you tell me will be treated with utmost confidentiality. My email address is : Gaggan.Sabherwal@bbc.co.uk
Take care and thank you for your time and support!
I look forward to hearing from you J
For those who have not yet seen the film –
