Police killer Harry Roberts to be released from prison

A man who was jailed for life for murdering three unarmed police officers in London in 1966 is to be released from prison.

Harry Roberts, 78, is one of Britain's longest serving prisoners but the Parole Board of England and Wales has said he can now be freed.

The Metropolitan Police Federation said the decision was a "betrayal of policing" by the judicial system.
