Royal Pardon for Michael Shields

Wonderful, fantastic, marvellous news that an innocent lad has finally been freed from jail.

A huge debt of thanks is owed to Cllr Joe Anderson, Louise Ellman MP and Arlene McCarthy MEP for all the work they have done to secure this.

I wish Michael all the best for his future and hope that he and his family can start now to rebuild their lives. This is simply the best news.
