24-year-old Sam Hallam was freed on bail from the Court of Appeal in London today, after prosecutors announced they would not oppose his appeal against conviction.
Hallam was 18-years-old when he was convicted of the murder of 21-year-old trainee chef Essayas Kassahun, who died after being attacked by a group of youths in Clerkenwell, London in 2004.
There were cheers and tears in the public gallery as Lady Justice Hallett said the court would give its ruling in the case tomorrow, but that Hallam would be released on bail this afternoon.
Earlier, the court heard from his QC that Hallam was the victim of a "serious miscarriage of justice".
