The story behind the 1970s Underground serial killer

A former detective has claimed that Scotland Yard covered up allegations a killer pushed 18 people to their deaths on the London Underground in the 1970s.

Geoff Platt claims convicted murderer Kieran Kelly told police he'd pushed people onto the tube tracks, but they played down the claims fearing a public panic.

Mr Platt has recently published a book on the case, and he told London Live the full story.
