Justice for Danny Major, Finally?

On 11th December 2015, the long awaited report of the Greater Manchester Police review of Danny's case was delivered to the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson.

In a statement, Mr Burns-Williamson said the following:

"What the report does say is that, in the opinion of the investigating team, the evidence supports the premise that there may have been a miscarriage of justice and that there is sufficient 'fresh evidence' to support the case being referred back to the Criminal Case Review Commission (CCRC)."
