PATSY DRIVER – The Cumbria Shootings
In June 2010 Cumbria suffered one of the worst criminal acts involving firearms in British history.
Twelve people were killed and eleven injured at 24 shooting locations. The mainstream media rushed to Whitehaven the same day and had the entire case all wrapped up before the sun had set. They named the perpetrator as Derrick Bird, who they said was responsible for the entire massacre. It didn’t take them long to then explain his motives, and it seemed there were many. This case immediately suggested to me there was more to these shootings than had been discovered. In December 2013 I started my own investigation, and I have now spoken to dozens of first hand witnesses. The film follows my search for the truth and, demonstrates major anomalies in the evidence which suggests there could be an entirely different motive for what happened that day.
