Cherie Blair will join police patrols on some of Britain’s toughest estates in a follow-up to last year’s Channel 4 series, The Truth About Street Weapons.

The 60-minute Dispatches programme will feature Blair looking at the impact of the C4 Street Weapons Commission, which was set up for the earlier series and gathered evidence for a Home Affairs select committee report on policing in the 21st century.

Blair will again work with Granada’s Alex Gardiner for the doc, which was ordered by Dorothy Byrne.

Channel 4 plans to broadcast the film in July.
