Vigil in memory of Christopher Alder, Hull
Vigil in memory of Christopher Alder, Hull
On 1st April 1998 Christopher Alder died in Police Custody inside the Police Station opposite Queens Gardens, Hull. I was a tiny bit involved at the time in the solidarity and support group for Christopher's family (I lived in Preston so not nearby) and went to Hull a couple of times on demos and to meetings.

14 years later, this Sunday, there was a vigil in memory of Christopher and we went along - especially emotional as late last years Christopher's body was found in Hull mortuary and it was discovered that the body of a 77 year old black women called Grace Kamara had been released to Christopher's family and buried in his place.

The woman you can see speaking in the middle of this photo is Janet Alder, Christopher's sister.
