Welcome to the Murder Mile podcast, a true-crime podcast and audio guided walk of London's most infamous (and often forgotten) murder cases, set within one square mile of the West End.
Episode One: The Denmark Place Fire is widely regarded as one of Britain's deadliest mass-murders (in terms of death-toll it was worse than the King's Cross Fire and even the Great Fire of London) and yet the true story of what happened on 16th August 1980 is largely forgotten.
