Murder for BBC doc

Murderer Colin Cheetham is set to feature in a documentary on BBC1.

Crimewatch special Catch Me If You Can looks at the different methods police have to use in their investigations to catch killers.

Colin Cheetham’s murder of Stuart Ludlam, at Cromford railway station in 2009, is one of the cases featured in the hour-long programme.

A spokesman for the BBC said: “Catch Me If You Can looks at murderers and the lengths they will go to cover up their tracks.

“It also explores how police have had to step up their game.”

Last June, gun fanatic Colin Cheetham was given a prison sentence of at least 30 years after being convicted of killing taxi driver Stuart Ludlam.

Cheetham, 61, of Ripley, lured Stuart Ludlam to a deserted railway station before shooting him.

The father of three was found in the boot of his taxi at Cromford railway station in September 2009.

Cheetham was caught when police found he owned the mobile phone which was used to lure Stuart Ludlam to the deserted railway station.

Catch Me If You Can airs at 9pm on Tuesday, May 17, on BBC1.
