Radiative b-hadron decays are sensitive probes of New Physics through the study of branching fractions, CP asymmetries and measurements of the polarisation of the photon emitted in the decay. During Run 1 of the LHC, the LHCb experiment has collected large samples of radiative b-hadron decays. We present here the latest LHCb measurements, including new results on the time dependence of $B_s \to \phi \gamma$ decays. These results help constrain the size of right-handed currents in extensions of the Standard Model.
