Lynette White police corruption investigation welcomed

The solicitor for one of three men wrongly convicted of killing a Cardiff prostitute said Home Secretary Theresa May is to order an investigation into the collapse of the UK's biggest police corruption trial.

Lynette White was stabbed more than 50 times in 1988 in the Cardiff docklands flat where she worked as a prostitute.

The wrongful convictions later led to the £30m corruption case in 2011. The Home Office said it would make an announcement shortly.

Matthew Gold who acts for Stephen Miller said they were told on 4 February that the investigation will start on 2 March.

Stuart Hutton, the lawyer who represented John Actie and his cousin Ronnie - the two men who were cleared in the original trial - told BBC Wales he welcomed an investigation.
