Sgt Nightingale's wife: 'It's still not over'

Sgt Danny Nightingale's wife, Sally, has said the battle to clear her husband's name still continues after the Court of Appeal judge ordered a retrial against his conviction.

She said:

I'm relieved the convictions have been quashed. There has been ordered to be a re-trial. It's still not over.

Appeal judges said the judge at Sgt Nightingale's military trial had given an "uninvited sentence indication".

They said that indication had "narrowed" Sgt Nightingale's freedom of choice when considering pleas to charges.
