£53m drug plot fisherman: 'I am innocent'

A fisherman convicted of trying to smuggle £53m of cocaine into the UK has said he will fight to clear his name after being released from prison.

Scott Birtwistle, then aged 19, served half of a 14-year sentence. The four others convicted are still in jail.
