Sam Hallam gives first interview since his name was cleared

Sam Hallam spent seven years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit.

The 24 year old from Hoxton was jailed for 12 years in 2005 over the death of a chef in East London.

Today, a Judge quashed his murder conviction saying Sam had been a victim of a "serious miscarriage of justice".

Speaking for the first time since his name was cleared, Sam told our reporter Ronke Phillips, he was happy to be home.
