A former Norfolk police and crime commissioner's son jailed for killing a woman in a crash has been freed by the London Appeal Court.

Henry Bett, 27, of Thornham, near Hunstanton, son of Stephen Bett, was jailed for three and a half years in August 2015.

He was convicted of causing the death of Rebecca Brown, 43, by dangerous driving in a December 2013 collision.

The court quashed the conviction and ordered his immediate release on bail.

The three Appeal Court judges also said he must be re-tried.

Mr Bett, of Ling Farm Cottages, Thornham, pleaded not guilty in 2015 to death by dangerous driving, but was convicted by a Peterborough Crown Court jury.

The court ordered that no details of the arguments in Mr Bett's appeal could be published for legal reasons.
