Amanda Knox being interviewed on the set of ABC's
The British and American public have different opinions about Amanda Knox's guiltReuters

More than half the British public think Amanda Knox killed Meredith Kercher, a poll has revealed.

An Italian court reinstated guilty verdicts against Amanda Knox and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of the UK student in 2007.

But although Knox continues to protest her innocence and vows to overturn the judgement, a Yougov poll shows Britons doubt her innocence.

From what they know about the case, 51% of Brits think Knox is probably guilty, while just 13% think she had probably been wrongly accused.

The outlook is very different across the atlantic where opinion is more divided.

The same poll showed 29% of Americans think Knox is likely to have killed Kercher while 21% think she is probably innocent.

Defence attorney Alan Dershowitz told Press Association: "I don't remember any case which has been as highly publicised and where the countries have taken sides...I think it's fair to say that the vast number of Americans think she is innocent and a substantial number of Italians think she is guilty."
