Gerry Conlon, Wrongly Imprisoned

Gerry Conlon spent 15 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

He was one of the so-called Guildford Four, jailed in 1975 for an IRA pub bombing which killed five people and injured more than 60. Other members of his family were also wrongfully imprisoned for terrorist offences, including his father - who was to die in prison.

In 2005 the then British prime minister Tony Blair apologised to Gerry Conlon and the others in his case and he was awarded compensation. But on The Interview he tells Carrie Gracie that he still can't move on and his life has been ruined.
