‘Accused’ episode 2 airs Tuesday 21 August at 9pm on BBC One.

Mo Murray (Anne-Marie Duff) has taken a stand against drugs, gangs and gun crime in her community, but now she stands alongside her mother Maureen and her 17-year-old son Jake in the dock. Why?

Today a day unlike any other. It is the funeral of a local gang member and the gang’s leader Cormack (Joe Dempsie) has sent a message to all the local shops: stay closed and show respect, or there will be consequences.

But hairdressing salon owner Mo (Anne-Marie Duff) refuses to be intimidated. Supported by her best friend Sue (Olivia Colman), they take a defiant stand and open up for business on the day of the funeral, ignoring the warnings of their teenage sons, Jake (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Sean (Oliver Lee), and Mo’s mother (Ruth Sheen).

Anne-Marie Duff plays Mo Murray; Ruth Sheen plays Maureen; Thomas Brodie-Sangster plays Jake; Olivia Colman plays Sue; Oliver Lee plays Sean and Joe Dempsie plays Cormack.
