Another case we're always going to wonder about but it seems James Hanratty was certainly executed in error....

The book that eventually led to the pardon of Hanratty, the last man executed in England before the death penalty was abolished as barbaric. The book revolves around an interview conducted by the author (son of former Labour Party leader Michael Foot and a campaigning journalist throughout his life) with the man who claimed responsibility.

I would have read this in the late 80s originally and it has stuck with me ever since. I still have the book, but have never reread it. It's probably quite rar

DNA evidence in 2002 seems to prove Hanratty's guilt - shock after reading all the evidence pointing the other way in this book. However, Foot and the Hanratty family believe there was contamination of the DNA evidence because the items were not kept separate at the time of the trial.
