Tragic Angela wakes to freedom.

TRAGIC mother Angela Cannings was waking up a free woman today after being cleared of murdering her two baby sons.

The 40-year-old said she was determined to be "mummy" to her surviving daughter after the Court of Appeal overturned a life sentence yesterday.

The case came amid continuing doubt about the causes of cot death, which she has always insisted killed her little boys.

The case followed a decision earlier this year to overturn solicitor Sally Clarke's conviction of murdering her two young sons, and the acquittal of pharmacist Trupti Patel on charges of murdering her three babies.

Defence lawyers for Mrs Cannings claimed that one prosecution expert, paediatrician Prof Sir Roy Meadow, had given "misleading" evidence that three cot deaths in the same family was "very, very rare".
