Hillsborough to Lambeth
He's just lost more than a m in a failed business venture. He then takes on an inner-city Unit for extremely vulnerable pupils. Brian Pead - teacher, author, therapist, researcher. And survivor of child sexual abuse. Using radical methods in which the pupils develop self-esteem and flourish, the Unit is described by researchers at King's College as the most successful in London. Into this idyll walks Maryn Murray, a South African female supply teacher who befriends Anya Hiley, an unmarried young people's adviser, and Paul Waters, a father of four who dresses as a woman and calls himself Ermina to work in Lambeth schools. Pead exposes Murray for racism and grooming young girls and dismisses her. So why was Pead's office ransacked? Why was he dismissed and Murray re-employed to work alongside Waters and Hiley? As a Liverpool FC fan, Pead had seen corruption from a distance with the Hillsborough disaster. But now it infiltrated every aspect of his life. This is the true story of one man's remarkable fight to expose corruption against all the odds and to ensure that his beloved and estranged grand-children would one day learn the truth in the same way as the Hillsborough families.
