I am doing some research into Roderick and Mark Newall.
Please may I request access to the Jersey Heritage Police files relating to the Newall Murders?
I was wondering if it would also be possible to listen to a recording of Roderick Newall's confession tape which was used during the hearing and in the Gibraltar Trial.
