Wrongful imprisonment (Radio 4 series: Woman's Hour)

This episode of Radio 4's Woman's Hour series looks at what support is available for people released on appeal and why is it often less than if the accused had been found guilty. In December 2003 Angela Canning was cleared for murdering her two babies. This has led to the wholesale review of cases of parents and carers convicted of killing their babies over the last ten years. The Attorney General has already suggested that it might be appropriate for 24 cases to be considered for appeal. Jenni Murray talks to Amarjit Kaur from the Citizens Advice Bureau who are piloting a project to support these innocent people.
