Cardiff Uni students help Dwaine George win murder appeal

A former gang member has been finally cleared of murdering a teenager after Cardiff students championed his case.

Dwaine George, 30, was jailed in 2002 after Daniel Dale was shot dead in Miles Platting, Manchester.

He denied involvement and analysis of his case by Cardiff University law students led to his successful appeal.

Presiding judge Sir Brian Leveson said the conviction was "no longer safe" and praised the students' "diligent" work.

Rhodri Lewis reports.
