Man cleared of killing tourist speaks out

A man from Essex who's been cleared of drowning a fellow passenger on a booze cruise in Tenerife nearly 17 years ago has been telling ITV News Anglia about how it's affected his life.

Darren Sapstead, from South Woodham Ferrers, was accused of pushing Garry Walton from Ireland overboard. The case was originally treated as an accident but in 2005 Mr Sapstead was extradited to Spain.

Mr Sapstead was extradited in 2005 and spent 8 months in jail in Spain before returning home on bail. Last week he was acquitted by a jury.
