The final page was turned yesterday in the campaign to exonerate the Bridgewater Four when a 22-day hearing before the Court of Appeal came to an end.

James Robinson, 63, cousins Vincent Hickey, 42, and Michael Hickey, 35, and the relatives of the late Patrick Molloy must now await the reserved judgment of the three judges before knowing whether their convictions for the killing in 1978 of 13-year-old newspaper boy Carl Bridgewater will be quashed. The three men have been on unconditional bail since February when the prosecution accepted that fresh evidence of a fabricated confession made all four convictions unsafe. Patricia Wynn Davies
