Blakelock murder witness accused of being ‘fantasist

AN anonymous witness in the Pc Keith Blakelock murder trial was today accused of being a delusional “fantasist” who was put up to lie about what he saw during the Tottenham riots.


The witness, known as Q, told the Old Bailey that he saw defendant Nicky Jacobs attack Pc Blakelock with a “tool” wielded in a “stabbing motion” during the unrest on the Broadwater Farm estate in north London on the night of October 6 1985.

But in cross examination, Jacobs’s barrister Courtenay Griffiths QC accused him of telling lies because his cousin, another witness in the case, told him to.
