ITV reconstruction of the Stockwell shooting – De Menezes
May 26, 2009
Tellycars was very pleased to have provided ITV with many of the Props, Costumes and Supporting Artists for it’s ITV drama, “Stockwell”, which follows the police on the day of the tragic shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes – we also provided firearms and vehicles to help with the reconstruction.
ITV News journalists obtained documents and photos from the investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, and discovered that the man had not tried to run away from police and that they made a number of mistakes in their surveillance operation. De Menezes was shot dead by armed police on the morning of July 22. At the time, police, who thought he was a suicide bomber, said he had attempted to evade them by running away and jumping over a ticket barrier.
