Shay Doyle Interview | Former Soldier and Police Officer


In this remarkable episode of British Murders, I welcome former British soldier and police officer Shay Doyle to the show.⁣

 

Shay's police career spanned 17 years, and he was one of the UK's chosen few Level 1 undercover operatives.

 

Posing as a professional criminal, he came face to face with some of Britain's most dangerous gangsters and was part of a hand-picked team chosen to hunt down the now-convicted murderer Dale Cregan.

 

After being medically discharged from the police in 2020, Shay is now a mental health advocate working alongside professionals and organisations to tackle the stigma attached to mental health in high-risk and high-pressure roles.

 

He is also a passionate activist against gun, gang and knife crime.

 

Shay's book 'Deep Cover: How I took down Britain's most dangerous gangsters', released on March 3, 2022, is available to purchase here:
