Victor Nealon freed after 17 years in jail

The Court of Appeal has quashed the conviction of a former postman who spent 17 years in prison after new forensic evidence came to light.

Victor Nealon, 53, was jailed for attempted rape in 1997 - but always claimed he was innocent.

But new forensic tests found DNA from another man on the victim's clothing.

Matthew Amroliwala reports.
