L-R James Robinson and cousins Vincent and Michael Hickey, who were jailed for 18 years for the murder of 13-year-old paper boy Carl Bridgewater, were released after the Court of Appeal ruled their convictions unsafe..Since they were jailed in 1979, the men had always protested their innocence but it took six separate police inquiries and three full appeals for them to walk free.
