Post Office Scandal – The Inside Story

Creative Quarter Over the Water

This is the true story of how hundreds of innocent Post Office workers fought to clear their names when accounting errors created by dodgy IT (a notoriously unreliable system called ‘Horizon’) led to them being accused of theft and fraud.

Proud pillars of their communities were stripped of their jobs and livelihoods. Many were forced into bankruptcy and/or borrowed from friends and family to give the Post Office thousands they did not owe. Hundreds of innocent people were criminally prosecuted by the Post Office’s own private prosecutors and sent to prison.
