Burnley BNP Bombers - 2nd Jury cannot agree on a verdict

At the end of a 9 day re trial Ex-BNP local election candidate and bus driver Robert Cottage (49) and dentist David Jackson (62) were again found not guilty of plotting to make bombs intending to endanger life. This second jury was faced with the same evidence that the first jury considered in February this year.

The jury of 7 men and 4 women at Manchester Crown Court spent only a day and half deliberating before returning to tell Mrs Justice Swift they were unable to reach a verdict.

The CPS have said it will not seek a re-trial.

In a paradoxical end to a very curious case, Cottage, who had pleaded guilty will be remanded and sentenced within 4 weeks and Jackson was released to enjoy his recent retirement from dentistry.
