Blakelock killing: Cleared Nicky Jacobs talks to the BBC

The man cleared of killing PC Keith Blakelock has said he would feel "angry and disappointed at the system" if he was a member of the police officer's family.

Speaking to BBC Newsnight, Nicholas Jacobs said he would "be outside the courts, petitioning" if he were in the family's place.

Mr Jacobs, 45, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter last week.

PC Blakelock was stabbed 43 times at Broadwater Farm in Tottenham in 1985.

He spoke exclusively to Kurt Barling for BBC Newsnight.
