Sally Clark was imprisoned for three and a half years after being found guilty of smothering to death her two children.
She was released when new evidence came to light that suggested the two children had a common bacterial infection.
It came too late for Mrs Clark, who sadly died last March at the age of 42, and many of her friends believed it was from a broken heart.
But there is a more sinister twist, and one that suggests a cover-up about the safety of childhood vaccines. The original judge and jury that imprisoned Mrs Clark were never told that just five hours before his death, baby Harry had been given a DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) and Hib vaccine, and an oral polio vaccine.
Witnesses at the time said that Harry was uncharacteristically sleepy from the time of the jabs until his death.
The full facts were never released to the trial because the paediatrician Professor Sir Roy Meadow, a witness for the prosecution, assured everyone that there was no possible connection.
It's a cavalier view that flies in the face of the facts. The DTP vaccine can cause life-threatening reactions in susceptible babies, as was made clear in a paper prepared by Dr Gordon Stewart, emeritus professor of public health at the University of Glasgow.
Dr Stewart's report has never been published.
