Post Office scandal: from suicides to jail time with child killers — the heartbreaking stories of the postmasters

Child killers including Rose West, the serial killer wife of notorious murderer Fred West. This was the sort of criminal that Janet Skinner, 52, was forced to rub shoulders with in a drug-infested jail after being wrongly accused of stealing £60,000 from her post office in Hull. The then-35-year-old mother-of-two lost her home and was handed nine-month jail sentence after her lawyer Karl Turner, now a Labour MP in Hull, reportedly advised her to plead guilty to avoid jailtime. “It was against everything I knew was true, but I followed the advice. That was a terrible mistake,” she has said since. Skinner served three months in New Hall prison in Wakefield, one of Britain’s toughest jails, before being released on an electronic tag, but says the whole saga ruined her life.
