Susanna Reid examines the evidence

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.
