    Six former sub-postmasters wrongly accused of theft and fraud because of an IT error have become the first to have their convictions quashed.

    The Post Office had earlier said it would not oppose attempts to overturn the convictions of 44 sub-postmasters.

    The convictions, which were based on evidence provided by a faulty IT system, were “unsafe”, the Post Office admitted.
