The innocent landlord of murdered landscape architect Joanna Yeates has received a letter from police expressing "regret" for the first time at the way he was treated after being arrested over her killing.
Christopher Jefferies hailed what he described as "public vindication" from Avon and Somerset Police over its handling of his detention, bail and subsequent release without charge after 25-year-old Miss Yeates' death in December 2010.
The "letter of exoneration expressing regret" from chief constable Nick Gargan - who met the retired teacher last Friday - acknowledged the "hurt" caused to the 68-year-old retired teacher when the force failed to clear him publicly of suspicion over Miss Yeates' murder.
