'Absurd charges' need to be dropped after prison release

It's amazing news to know that Kieron will be released from prison soon. We have been thinking of him every minute of every day and we can't wait to speak to him and see him.

Our relief is obviously tempered by the fact that he is still facing absurd charges, despite the fact that he was just doing his job.

This isn't over for him or the others involved and we hope that these charges will be dropped soon so that he can carry on with his life without this terrible uncertainty hanging over him.
