Royal pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing.

Computer pioneer and codebreaker Alan Turing has been given a posthumous royal pardon. “Turing deserves to be remembered and recognised for his fantastic contribution to the war effort and his legacy to science. A pardon from the Queen is a fitting tribute to an exceptional man.”

The pardon comes into effect on 24 December.
