3 September 2014 Last updated at 22:12 BST

A man who spent 30 years in prison for rape and murder said he has "no anger" over his wrongful conviction, after DNA evidence proved his innocence.

Henry McCollum, 50, was convicted in 1984 along with his brother Leon Brown, 46, of raping and killing an 11-year-old girl in North Carolina.

A county judge ordered the immediate release of the brothers after recently analysed DNA evidence from the crime scene implicated another man, who is in prison for a similar crime.
