**John Hinckley Jr, the man who tried to assassinate US President Ronald Reagan, is to be released from a psychiatric hospital next month after 35 years.

Mr Reagan and three others were injured in the shooting outside a hotel in Washington in March 1981.

Mr Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity but was sent for treatment to a Washington hospital.

He has already been spending 17 days a month at his mother’s home in Virginia under strict conditions.

A judge ruled that Mr Hinckley, now 61, could reside full-time there on “convalescent leave” from 5 August.**
