Blakelock: Stabbed colleague 'very disappointed'

The police officer who was stabbed alongside PC Keith Blakelock says he is "very disappointed" that nobody has yet been found guilty of his murder.

Retired policeman Richard Coombes only survived the attack during the Broadwater farm riots in Tottenham in 1985 because another officer protected him with his shield.

Nicky Jacobs, the fourth person to be tried over PC Blakelock's murder, was found not guilty by the jury and acquitted.

Mr Coombes told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "It doesn't give anybody the opportunity to draw a line under this... [his family] must today be feeling that they'll never get justice for Keith."
