Sniper waiting for result of appeal

An SAS sniper is waiting to hear whether he has succeeded in an appeal against convictions for illegally possessing a pistol and ammunition.

Three appeal judges said they aimed to make a ruling on Danny Nightingale's case later today, after hearing evidence at a Court of Appeal hearing in London.

Sergeant Nightingale, 38, of Crewe, Cheshire, was sentenced to 18 months' military detention by a judge sitting in a military court in early November 2012 - after admitting illegally possessing a Glock 9mm pistol and more than 300 rounds of ammunition.
