Three men who were convicted of theft nearly 50 years ago in the UK have finally had their names cleared with the Lord Chief Justice saying, “Our regret is that it has taken so long for this injustice to be remedied.”

The men were arrested in March 1972 by a group of undercover police officers at the Oval Underground station in London. They were beaten in the police cells and then charged with attempting to steal, theft, and assault of the police.
