Alan Turing's Family Demand Government Pardon 49,000 Gay Men

The family of Alan Turing handed in a petition in favour of gay men persecuted like him for their sexuality just hours after the codebreaker's story won an Oscar with The Imitation Game. Turing's relatives were visiting Downing Street to hand in the petition - signed by more than 523,000 people - to demand the Government pardons tens of thousands of other British men convicted under historic homophobic laws.
