A Derbyshire man whose conviction for murder was quashed as unsafe has received his final compensation payment from the Home Office.
Stephen Downing has received final compensation for 27 years in jail
Stephen Downing, from Bakewell, served 27 years in prison for the murder of Wendy Sewell in September 1973.
But after reinvestigating the case, Derbyshire Police said they were not looking for anyone else.
Mr Downing, who received an interim compensation payment of £250,000, will not say how much he has now been given.
He was convicted of killing Wendy Sewell in a cemetery on the basis of a confession made after nine hours of questioning.
He was 17 at the time, but was assessed as having a mental age of 11.
Mr Downing has denied rumours that his final payment was as much as £500,000.
BBC reporter Simon Hare told BBC Radio Derby he had spoken to Mr Downing on Sunday who said that that figure was "way off".
"He said it was less than £500,000 but more than £5. He wouldn't get into whether it was four, five or six figures.
"He made the point that he really does need this latest amount of money. He's been struggling to get work as a freelance photographer."

Simon Hare also spoke to former Matlock Mercury editor Don Hale who campaigned to get Mr Downing released.
"Don Hale made the point that in the eyes of the law Stephen Downing was an innocent man and under the double-jeopardy rules the Crown Prosecution Service had said they were not looking to charge Stephen again.
"I also spoke to David Sewell, Wendy's husband. He said he wants to know who authorised the payment and on what grounds - especially as he's still in dispute with the CPS about the double-jeopardy ruling.
"But he said he doesn't care whether Stephen Downing gets two brass buttons or £2m. What he still wants is justice for Wendy and that needs a conviction," Simon Hare added.
