A woman from Scarborough who was wrongly convicted for the manslaughter of her baby son has lost her fight for compensation at the European Court of Human Rights.
Lorraine Allen was jailed for three years in 2000 after wrongly being found guilty of killing her four-month-old baby boy, Patrick.
Expert witnesses claimed at her trial that he was a victim of "shaken baby" syndrome.
In 2005 new medical evidence cast doubt on her conviction and it was quashed.
She has been battling for compensation as the victim of a miscarriage of justice since then.
The European Court upheld the UK court ruling today, agreeing that she would not receive any compensation.
