Fight to clear Derby suffragette Alice Wheeldon's name
A campaign has begun to clear the name of a suffragette, jailed for attempting to poison a prime minister.
Alice Wheeldon, who lived in Pear Tree Road in Derby, was found guilty of the poison plot against David Lloyd George in 1917.
Sentenced to 10 years, Mrs Wheeldon was released after nine months due to ill health from hunger strikes.
Historian Dr Nicholas Hiley said new research showed the case against her had been "shaky".
