(TELEGRAPH) Michael Chamberlain, whose baby was snatched by a dingo in outback Australia in 1980 – sparking a murder trial that divided the nation – has died, aged 72.

Chamberlain’s then wife Lindy, who famously screamed “a dingo has got my baby” after their nine-week-old daughter Azaria went missing at a campsite near Uluru, or Ayers Rock, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in jail.

He was found guilty of being an accessory and was given an 18-month suspended sentence.
