Barking Murders

Stephen Port is a convicted serial rapist and serial killer. Over three-and-a-half years, between 2012 and 2015, he is responsible for murdering at least four men in Barking: Anthony Walgate, Jack Taylor, Daniel Whitworth and Gabriel Kovari, and committing multiple rapes. Port received a life sentence with a whole life order on 25 November 2016, meaning he will not become eligible for parole and is unlikely to ever be released from prison.

Working with the LGBT+ Independent Advisory Group, the Met police investigated 58 deaths connected to the use of GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyric acid) in response to the Port case. The report was released in July 2019.
