Neil Lennon 'parcel bomb' trial delayed

The trial of two men accused of a plot to kill Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two other high profile supporters of the club will now begin next week.

The trial of Trevor Muirhead, 43, and Neil McKenzie, 42, had been due to begin on Thursday.

But the case was again adjourned due to Mr McKenzie's QC Donald Findlay's continued involvement in another case.

The trial had already been delayed earlier this week due to Mr Findlay's unavailability.

Mr Muirhead and Mr McKenzie are alleged to have sent suspected parcel bombs to Mr Lennon, QC Paul McBride and former MSP Trish Godman.

The packages are said to have contained nails and an explosive substance or petrol.

Both accused deny all the charges against them.
