No Ordinary Day

Matt Johnson; John Murray / Richard Attlee
Behind one of the greatest tragedies in UK policing history lies an incredible political scandal. On 17 April 1984 as demonstrators gathered outside the Libyan embassy in London two gunmen lay in wait inside. At 10.18 a.m. automatic gunfire rained down on the protestors and and WPC Yvonne Fletcher fell mortally wounded. As his friend lay dying PC John Murray promised her that he would not rest until those responsible had been brought to justice. Thirty-seven years would pass before he was able to fulfil that undertaking. Matt Johnson's moving account of one man's dogged pursuit of justice for a murdered colleague uncovers secret-service deals and government duplicity all part of a plan to force an end to the miners' strike. He discovers the real reason Yvonne's killers were allowed to go free and how events that day led to thirty years of growing political control of policing which has led to the disarray increasingly evident today. This compelling account provides shocking insights into how decisions taken by our politicians and the actions of our intelligence agencies supposedly in our best interests may be anything but.
