ITV’s latest four-part series, 'Mr Bates vs The Post Office' explores the British Post Office scandal, which saw hundreds of sub postmasters falsely accused of theft, fraud and false accounting following an IT malfunction called Horizon.

The drama explores the first financial discrepancies, the devastating impact of the scandal on the accused and their loved ones, and their fight for justice which was led by Alan Bates.

A public inquiry into the scandal is due to hear from senior Post Office and government officials this year.
