The Post Office Horizon scandal has been dubbed the most "widespread miscarriage of justice in British legal history".
Now it has been made into a TV drama.
ITV's ‘Mr Bates vs The Post Office’ tells the story of how hundreds of local post office branch managers were wrongly accused of theft, fraud and false accounting over a 15 year period.
Many were sent to prison, left financially ruined and dealing with the long-term impacts of having a criminal record.
