I produced the BBC documentary about Colin's case and believe strongly that he is entirely innocent. I hope the CCRC will hasten their review of the new expert evidence and refer Colin's case to the Court of Appeal. I'd be happy to provide further information. or call me 07528 44 33 35
IF you want to sign the petition to get Colin released please visit
An innocent man
free him now
Colin was convicted on 4th March 2008 of 4 charges of murder and one of attempted murder by the injection of large doses of insulin, leading to death by hypoglycaemia. The crimes were alleged to have taken place in hospitals in Leeds, over a 6 month period. We believe that Colin is innocent of these crimes and is a victim of a gross miscarriage of justice under a flawed legal system.
Colin is now serving life in HMP Frankland high security prison. Colin himself has always claimed his innocence and continues to do so, and he also believes that it is possible that no crime was actually committed but that these women may well have died of natural causes as was the accepted medical prognosis at the time of their deaths and was the recorded reason on their death certificates.
The above link is a documentary made by the BBC. The journalist who investigated this case also believes Colin to be innocent and this to be a huge miscarriage of justice. Please watch this documentary as I can guarantee you will find this interesting.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
