Iain Overton
Author and Director of Policy and Investigations for the Charity Action on Armed Violence

There are almost one billion guns across the globe today – more than ever before. There are 12 billion bullets produced every year – almost two bullets for every person on this earth. And as many as 500,000 people are killed by them ever year worldwide. The gun’s impact is long-reaching and often hidden. And it doesn’t just involve the dead, the wounded, the suicidal and the mourning. It involves us all. In this lecture, award-wining investigative journalist Iain Overton recounts how, in writing a critically acclaimed book about the gun’s impact on the world, he embarked upon a shocking and eye-opening journey to over 25 countries, from South Africa to Iceland, Honduras to Cambodia.

Car parking
When you arrive for a College event at our Egham campus, please park in car parks 1E, 1W, 12 or 4. Car park 12 can be accessed by turning right as you enter the main College gates; it is next to the tennis courts. Car park 1E and 1W are the car parks situated around Founder’s Building; you drive straight ahead to reach these as you come through the main College gates. If either of these car parks is full, please drive further onto our campus to car park 4, which is behind the Students’ Union. Blue Badge holders can find designated parking spaces in Car Parks 1E and 1W, as well as between Garden Lodge and the Williams Annexe. If you require any assistance on arrival, please contact our Premises team in advance of your visit by emailing:premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk and they will be happy to help. Please note that we do operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system on certain parts of our campus. However, if you are here for an organised event at any time of the day and park in car parks 1E, 1W, 12 or 4, you do not need to worry about registering for a permit. We want to welcome you to our campus to enjoy as many events as possible, so you can park in car parks 1E, 1W, 12 or 4 during all College events without the worry of being captured by the cameras. If you have any questions about parking, please email: premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk
