24 Hours in Police Custody is a Channel 4 documentary series in the United Kingdom. The show focuses on Bedfordshire Police as they investigate crimes in Luton. The show is produced by The Garden Productions, the same organisation that produces 24 Hours in A&E.
In late 2014, the first seven episodes of the series aired. Almost the course of six weeks, over 80 cameras was employed to video at Luton Police Station. A second series was ordered by Channel 4 and debuted in early 2015. A few episodes were shot in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire, either totally or partially. On March 22, 2021, the tenth season premiered.
Viewers have expressed fury and sadness over the murder of an 11-week-old infant in Cambridgeshire, calling the documentary “horrific to watch.”
The first segment of ‘Cold to the Touch,’ a two-part episode of 24 Hours in Police Custody, aired on Channel 4 (Monday, January 3), and it focused on the death of Teddie Mitchell, who died in November 2019 at the age of just 12 weeks.
Teddie was assaulted when he was 11 weeks old, and he died in hospital 10 days later after being put on life support.
True footage from interviews with Kane Mitchell, 32, who was sentenced to life in prison in February 2021 with a minimum of 18 years for killing newborn Teddie by slamming her head on a hard surface.
It also includes footage of the baby’s mother, Lucci Smith, who lived with Mitchell – who is not his real father – in St Neots and was found guilty of maltreatment and sentenced to a two-year community order.
Despite being persuaded to do so, Smith failed to contact 999 for more than 30 minutes after her spouse injured Teddie while she was on the school run, according to the documentary.
Teddie sustained injuries similar to those sustained by Baby P, including 17 fractured ribs, skull and collarbone fractures, as well as brain, spinal, and ocular damage.
When detectives questioned Smith about her son’s injuries, she stated she had “no idea” and denied she had “covered” for her boyfriend.
Teddie passed away in a hospital on November 11, 2019, after 10 days on life support.
Jurors heard that the infant had been “gripped violently,” “shaken aggressively,” and “had his head smashed on a hard surface,” among other injuries, after a four-week trial at Cambridge Crown Court. He also had a fractured skull and cerebral bleeding.
