Amanda Knox’s acquittal was greeted with jubilation by her supporters in America.

Before the verdict was in, news presenters had been reporting that she was “railroaded” by Italian prosecutors and was the victim of a “witch hunt.”

As Knox was freed last night, American television networks were engaged in a bidding war, vying for her first interview. One network was said to be on standby in Italy to fly her home for a heroine’s welcome.

In Seattle, there were whoops of delight and friends of Miss Knox embraced each other and cheered as the realisation that she was free dawned on them. Tom Wright, a campaigner, said: “To Amanda we say ‘way to go kid.’ We look forward to welcoming you home with open arms and open hearts.

“We want to express our sympathy to the family of Meredith Kercher. Let us not forget this is primarily a sad occasion. A young woman lost her life, and two other young people had a portion of their lives stolen.”

Supporters in Seattle had maintained an all-night vigil waiting for the verdict.
