Paul Chambers, the man who was found guilty of sending a menacing tweet and found himself at the centre of the Twitter Joke Trial, has won a High Court appeal against his conviction.

Loz Kaye leader of the UK political party, The Pirate Party, welcomed the decision, saying it was a victory for common sense.

"I am happy that this long running nightmare is over for Paul," said Kaye.
