Gerry Conlon spent 15 years in a British prison for a crime he didn't commit and saw his father, who was also wrongly arrested for the same crime, die in prison.
He died this morning aged 60, after a long illness. His family paid tribute to him, saying he "helped them survive what they were not meant to survive."
