Barry George, the man who was wrongly jailed and served eight years for Jill Dando's murder, has spoken of his hope to see her killer face justice.

He told ITV's Daybreak: "First, as strange as it might seem, for her family because obviously they have been wronged and they've not been, I believe although I can't be positive, that they've not been told all the truth of the matter of what's happened. They've probably been deceived a little."

Miss Dando was shot dead outside her home in Fulham, west London, in April 1999.

After his conviction in July 2001, Mr George, of Fulham, was acquitted of killing the 37-year-old BBC presenter at a retrial in August 2008.
