KFC chef Nigel Gray convicted after Rhuddlan robbery

A chef at a Denbighshire drive-through restaurant has been convicted of conspiring to rob the premises.

On Tuesday a Mold Crown Court jury found by a 10-2 majority that Nigel Gray, 41, helped to organise the £2,000 raid on the KFC at Rhuddlan.

The masked robber who clambered through the serving window, Ben Kennedy, 21, of Rhyl, had earlier pleaded guilty.

His father, John Kennedy, 44, who was the getaway driver, was convicted unanimously of conspiracy to rob.

All three men from Rhyl will be sentenced at a later date.

Judge Philip Hughes remanded Gray and John Kennedy in custody, warning them to expect substantial custodial sentences.
