After watching the live pictures of Keiron Bryan walking out of jail, his father Andy Bryan said:
We're absolutely thrilled Kieron is out. He looks tremendously relieved, in good shape, and doesn't seem to have lost his sense of humour either.
Now we just can't wait to speak to him and then we'll hopefully be able to see him in person too. Of course there are still these terrible charges hanging over him.
He feels a terrible injustice has been done but has also made it clear that he intends to clear his name.
