Hundreds of post office workers have won a key victory against the Post Office and the controversial accounting software it deployed.
This takes it a step nearer to overturning the convictions of postmasters accused of fraud or theft after using the Horizon IT system.
After the Post Office had acknowledged problems with the IT system last week, it has agreed to pay £58m to settle these claims.
The Post Office workers blame the system for creating big shortfalls in their accounts, discrepancies which led to some being made bankrupt and others prosecuted and sent to prison.
