Barry George, the man wrongly convicted of killing Jill Dando, has today lost his latest compensation battle. Mr George spent eight years in prison after he was wrongly convicted of the murder of the tv presenter, from Weston-super-Mare.

Earlier this year Mr George had a claim for compensation as a victim of a "miscarriage of justice" rejected on the grounds that he was "not innocent enough". Today the Court of Appeal rejected an application for permission to challenge that decision.
