The Bletchley Park codebreaker Alan Turing should be officially pardoned by the Government for his historic conviction for homosexuality, according to a group of leading scientists.
The group, which includes Professor Stephen Hawking and Baroness Trumpington, who worked for Turning at Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes, has called on the Prime Minister to formally forgive the mathematician.
Turing died from cyanide poisoning in 1954 after being convicted of gross indecency. His work at the Park played a vital role in bringing an end to the Second World War.
