When Nigel Lang was wrongly arrested on suspicion of sharing indecent images of children, he says his life fell apart. It all stemmed from nothing more than a typing error by police.

“When I was arrested, I feared what was going to happen to me.

“What about my family, will they be targeted? Will they target my mum’s house? Will they be getting sworn at and attacked in the street?”

Speaking to the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, Nigel Lang recalls the questions racing through his head one July morning in 2011… More at The BBC.

His life wasn’t ruined by a typo. It was ruined by the people who did not check things properly and who just blindly carried on doing their jobs. So sad.
