DNA TESTS to establish whether James Hanratty, who was hanged in 1962 for the A6 murder, was wrongly executedare inconclusive and must be taken again, it emerged yesterday.

Michael Hanratty, his brother, last night insisted that the conviction is set to be overturned following assurances from the Criminal Cases Review Commission. DNA samples from Hanratty's brother are being compared with samples from the underwear of the victim's mistress, Valerie Storie; she was raped and shot in the attack in which scientist Michael Gregsten was killed.
