Apology for hero Turing; SCIENCE.
Alan Turing cracked Nazi codes and became known as the father of computer science, developing the Turing machine and Turing test for thinking machines.
He killed himself aged 41 in 1954 after he was hounded out of science and forced to inject female hormones because of his homosexuality.
Gordon Brown said: "We are all deeply sorry for what happened to him."
