The Post Office Horizon IT Inquiry, chaired by Sir Wyn Williams is hosting live hearings likely into 2024. Its website is here.

The journalist, Nick Wallishosts a regular blog here and a podcast with Rebecca Thompson here. You can get an introduction to the history of the case through Nick’s pod cast series for the BBC, available on BBC Sounds here.

Karl Flinders (Computer Weekly) and Tom Witherow (the Times) are amongst the most assiduous reported of the story and will generally post copy regularly keeping their readers breast of updates as does John Hyde (and others) of the Law Society Gazette and Neil Rose and colleagues at Legal Futures.

Brian Whelton collates almost every link one could think of here.

Our own introduction to the Scandal is available on the Project’s You Tube channel here.

Richard Moorhead sits on the Horizon Compensation Advisory Board: information on that is found here.
