On 2 May 2014, I reported live to an audience of some one million viewers. Just after 11 o’clock that night, I left the blackened Trade Union House with a clear sense that a terrible tragedy had taken place, and that I had no idea what it was.
A few days later, I and some colleagues set up the 2 May Group and began a journalistic investigation. After a year’s work, after hundreds of interviews and dozens of information requests, after studying numerous video recordings, photographs and documents, we had pieced together a picture of what happened that day. For a year after that we were seeking out and adding further pieces to the jigsaw. We published a detailed chronology of the events and many articles about particular episodes.
