Y was acquitted on Tuesday at Southwark Crown represented by in-House Counsel Edward Fenner who was instructed by Archie Manby. Y faced trial on charges of Child Abductions and Rape along with 9 other defendants.

Mr Fenner was able to demonstrate the serious failings in a Kent Police investigation dating back 4 years. This meant not only that vital evidence had been missed but the Police failed to properly consider the reliability of the accusations made.
