    The death of Tyre Nichols

    Tyre Nichols was brutally assaulted by five police officers during a traffic stop in Memphis, Tennessee. He died from his injuries three days later on 10 January, with the beating having striking similarities with the 1991 Rodney King assault in Los Angeles. The family of Tyre Nichols have been invited to meet US president Joe Biden.

    On the Sky News Daily, host Niall Paterson talks to history professor Brenda Stevenson about the systematic problems with police and the wider justice system in America, and our US correspondent James Matthews about another example of brutality towards a black man.


    Warning: Sound from the police bodycam footage is used during the first eight minutes of the podcast. There's discussion of violence throughout.

    On the Sky News Daily, host Niall Paterson hears from GPs at one surgery in Cheshire about their thoughts on paid-for appointments, and Sky’s health correspondent discusses the future of the NHS, 75 years after it was founded.
