In this episode, Guardian reporter Amelia Gentleman describes how she uncovered the so-called Windrush scandal – the wrongful detention and deportation of scores of British citizens whose families came to the UK from the Caribbean in the late 1940s and 50s to help rebuild post-war Britain. Amelia’s reporting led ultimately to the resignation of the Home Secretary, but more importantly, forced the government to loosen its hostile environment for migrants. Amelia was speaking at an Investigative Journalism conference at Newcastle University hosted by the Civic Journalism Lab in association with the Centre for Investigative Journalism.
