Tragedy at Morecombe Bay

Tragedy at Morecambe Bay

  • Name of case - Operation Lund
  • Force - Lancashire Police
  • Solution deployed - Electronic Presentation of Evidence
  • Challenge - SRi Forensics were approached by Lancashire Police to come up with a solution of how to present to a jury, this unprecedented case outlining the death of 23 Chinese Cockle pickers in Morecambe Bay.
  • With over 10,000 pieces of evidence to collate and 'simplify', the case preparation took 7 months while the trial ran for 6 months, making it one of the longest and largest criminal prosecutions in the United Kingdom. The case was so large, we combined with two other companies to expand our capability.
With the conviction of the gang master Lin Liang Ren, the Acting Chief constable of Lancashire gave well deserved thanks to the SRi Team when he wrote..

"I believe that this investigation is a testament to the strength that inter-agency partnership can acheve and have no hesitation in including your staff in the comments of His Lordship Justice Enriques when he praised the professionalism displayed by all concerned in bringing those responsible to justice."
