Barry George: UK legal system 'a mockery of justice'

Barry George, the man wrongfully convicted of the murder of TV presenter Jill Dando, has told the BBC that a decision not to award him compensation is "a mockery of justice."

He and three other men are protesting against tougher criteria for compensation payouts in so-called "miscarriage of justice" cases. Between them, they spent nearly 50 years in prison.

BBC 5 live's Rachel Burden reports.
