Mr Bates vs The Post Office – Leads to More Justice

Posted : 11th January 2024

A compelling new ITV drama, Mr Bates vs The Post Office, unfolds the story of one of the most significant miscarriages of justice in British legal history. The four-part series sheds light on the experiences of 736 former subpostmasters and postmistresses who were wrongly convicted due to a faulty IT system, causing irreparable damage to families and reputations.

In a significant development, the Post Office, in September 2023, pledged a minimum compensation of £600,000 to all former subpostmasters whose convictions are overturned. However, the quest for justice is far from over, with more than 600 individuals still seeking justice.

Watson Woodhouse Solicitors successfully overturned the wrongful conviction of a subpostmaster led by solicitor Denise Jackman, which gained attention on BBC One’s ‘Northern Justice’ program. Peter was a former police officer and subpostmaster accused of stealing £46,000 from the Post Office.
