The son of former Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Bett has been released from prison.

Three Appeal Court judges have overturned the conviction of Henry Bett for causing death by dangerous driving. But he will now face a re-trial.

Bett, 27, was jailed for three and a half years in August last year, for causing the death of Rebecca Brown by dangerous driving in December 2013.

He had denied the allegation but was found guilty following a trial.

However, an appeal against his conviction was heard at the Court of Appeal in London earlier this month.

And, today, three senior judges in London quashed the conviction and ordered Bett’s immediate release on bail.

Lord Justice Burnett, Mrs Justice Elisabeth Laing and Mrs Justice May also directed that he must be re-tried.

The court ordered that no details of the arguments in Bett’s appeal can be published for legal reasons.
