It follows four very different stories: a gang of car thieves who bring terror to an inner city estate; the story of a drunken prank when a bus is taken on a joyride which ends in an unexpected destination; a terrifying police car chase; and the story of how a life lived online is brought to a tragic end in a real car crash, but how the online aftermath has continued to haunt the victim's family and friends.

Our Crime: Speed is first shown on BBC Three, Monday 16th April, 2012. Visit to see more programme schedules.
