9:00am Saturday 9th February 2013 in News
A 19-year-old man has been acquitted of possessing a sawn-off shotgun found in a householder’s flowerbed.
He pleaded not guilty to possession of a prohibited firearm on or before July 27 last year.
The case involved a pump action shotgun found in the back garden of a house in Selbourne Terrace, Heaton.
The jury was told that Kayani’s fingerprints were on the bin liner enclosing the weapon but neither his prints nor his DNA were on the gun.
