A new one-off documentary, A Year of British Murder, reveals the terrible toll on the victims and their grieving families

Quamari Serunkuma-Barnes was 15 when he was stabbed to death outside his London school in January 2017.

Tragically, that year in Britain, 768 people died as a result of murder or manslaughter, and Quamari’s story is one of 13 told in this film revealing the impact such crimes have on
victims’ families.
