The mother of a 20-year-old student who died in mysterious circumstances in 1997 has told ITV News that being told a secret police unit was keeping information on her was like "a bomb exploding in my head".
Ricky Reel was with his friends on a night out before they were all racially abused by two white men.
The student disappeared shortly after that incident and his body was later found in the River Thames.
Today's report found that a secret police unit kept information on families of 17 justice campaigns.
In response to the findings, Ricky's mother Sukhdev Reel told ITV News: "Please spy on criminals, what crime did I commit?"
