A CANDID documentary on the murder of John Pordage has aired on national television.

Parents, friends and investigators all shared their perspectives in Killer Kid: The Murder of John Pordage which aired on 5Star on Tuesday August 13.

The documentary centres around the incident that saw 34-year-old Mr Pordage attacked with a cosh, and 17-year-old Bradley Blundell fatally shoot him at a BP garage in Great Baddow in 2017.

Following an exchange of words at the petrol station, Blundell shot Mr Pordage, who grew up in South Woodham Ferrers, at point blank range, with one shot hitting a telephone box down the road and the other hitting him in the chest.

The incident sent shockwaves through the city of Chelmsford.

A special report will be included in the August 15 edition of the Standard.
