Decriminalising homosexuality: An apology at last

It has been 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act decriminalised private homosexual acts between men aged over 21 in England and Wales, in 1967.

George Montague was convicted in 1974 of gross indecency with a man. The 93-year-old, who has fought for an apology, finally received one from the Home Office.
