A new podcast is examining the case of a man convicted of a Romford murder more than 15 years ago - but campaigners are fighting for his release from jail.

Mark Osborne was given a minimum of 30 years in jail in 2009 after being found guilty of murdering Mark Tredinnick, 39.

It was reported at the time Mr Osborne, who was 26 when he was sentenced, arranged for Collier Row resident Mr Tredinnick to be lured to his death and planned it from prison.


His brother Tony Osborne, then 27 and of Church Hill in Loughton, Essex and Wayne Collins, then 26 and of Campion House, Rush Green, were also jailed for murder.

Collins was reportedly the gunman who shot Mr Tredinnick in Benskins Lane.

Newsquest Investigates has looked at the case once again in the latest podcast in the Talking True Cases series, which was first streamed today (April 20).

The podcast heard from Mark's friend Julie Major, who is campaigning for his release and believes the case is a miscarriage of justice, as well as Jan Cunliffe, one of the founders of ‘Joint Enterprise Not Guilty by Association’.
