SAS gun appeal: Danny Nightingale 'pressured' into guilty plea

An SAS sniper who was jailed for possessing a pistol faced "undue pressure" from his own barrister to plead guilty, the Appeal Court heard.

Sgt Danny Nightingale, from Crewe, admitted possessing the 9mm Glock pistol and 338 rounds of ammunition at a court martial in November.

He was released early from his 18-month sentence after it was deemed too harsh
