Thurrock, mental health and the criminal justice system

SOME time ago, Grays resident Lynn Carr found her mentally vulnerable son entangled in the criminal justice system.

It was a traumatic period for them. Her son was charged with driving whilst unfit (through drink and drugs). Eventually, the case was thrown out but between the time of the alleged incident and the case thrown out, there was an emotional battle for not just justice to prevail but for the system to recognise how some people need the right protection and representation when in police custody.

We sat down with Lyn, who told us her story.
