A shooting spree that shocked Cumbria more than a decade ago will be relived on a television show next month.

Sky News presenter Dermot Murnaghan is set to present a series of programmes named 'Killer Britain', starting on May 31, which will examine some of the worst murders in the country.

Episode two, entitled 'Cumbria Shooting/Derrick Bird' will be shown on Tuesday, June 1 at 9pm on the Crime and Investigation channel, just one day before the 11th anniversary of the shootings which left 12 people dead and 11 more injured.

The Mail:

Publicity by the Crime and Investigation channel ahead of the show airing on TV has revealed what the programme aims to highlight: "Dermot Murnaghan remembers the morning of June 2, 2010 when the news broke of a gunman on the loose in Cumbria, indiscriminately killing strangers.

"Along with former Met detective Clive Driscoll, Dermot looks back on the remarkable events of that day, and the huge police operation to bring vengeful loner Derrick Bird in."
