20. Janet Alder, sister of Christopher Alder
Janet”s brother, Christopher, a father of two, died face-down in custody at Queens Gardens police station on April 1, 1998, with his hands cuffed behind his back. Then, in 2011, Christopher’s body was discovered in Hull Royal Infirmary’s mortuary, 11 years after his family believed they had laid him to rest. An exhumation of his grave in Hull’s Northern Cemetery in 2012 confirmed Grace Kamara, 77, had been buried in his place.
Janet has spent 18 years campaigning for justice. Last year, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) announced she was subjected to “improper surveillance” by Humberside Police. Here she talk about her experiences.
