Karen Henderson's lawyers lodge appeal

Karen Henderson's lawyers have lodged an appeal to overturn her conviction of the manslaughter of baby Maeve Sheppard.

Karen Henderson was convicted in November 2007 of shaking the 11-month old baby to death. Two jurors from the trial have since come out and stated that they believe she is innocent and a miscarriage of justice has occurred.

Lawyers are expected to challenge the scientific expert evidence.

BBC 1 will screen a programme about the case on Panorama tonight.
