Victor Nealon: Calls for case to be reopened

A man who spent 17 years in prison for a crime he did not commit is calling for the case to be reopened.

Victor Nealon, from Redditch, was sentenced to life for an attempted rape in 1997.

The Court of Appeal quashed his conviction after hearing DNA testing on the victim's clothes showed traces of a different man.

West Mercia police say they are now reviewing the case.

Cath Mackie spoke to Mr Nealon and solicitor Mark Newby.
