Farmer Tony Martin may call his book "My Right to Kill"
Jailed Norfolk farmer Tony Martin may publish a book after being released from prison, one of his supporters has revealed.

Martin is due to be released from Highpoint Prison in Suffolk next week.

The farmer, jailed after shooting dead a teenage burglar from Nottinghamshire who broke into his home at Emneth Hungate, Norfolk, has yet to make any decisions, said his friend Malcolm Starr.

But, Mr Starr added, he was considering a number of ideas.

Representatives of the farmer had met author John McVicar, who served a 26 year jail sentence for armed robbery, to discuss his idea for a book called "My Right to Kill", said Mr Starr on Wednesday.

Another suggested title for the autobiographical book was "I Will Not Say Sorry", he said.
