The following video shows Norfolk police attendance at Boyland Hall in Norfolk on 14 Jan 2018 when called by the homeowners on 999 during an armed raid by more than four men.
Police were told at the scene that one of the men had a handgun, another a crossbow-type weapon.
Norfolk police did not search their cars.
Three knives were found hidden in the ground the following day.
Shortly before the trial, police accidentally unredacted evidence that they already knew that the man carries a gun and uses it. At trial, the other was forced to admit he did have a weapon.
Two Crown Court trials ran out of time, and at the third, Nigel Stringer and his son were acquitted after four weeks of evidence and four years of waiting. At the time of arrest, Nigel Stringer was a serving Norfolk Magistrate of 26 years.
The evidence shown in the video has all been disclosed at three criminal trials and one civil trial. It is, therefore, public knowledge and lawful to display. The Stringers have commenced a civil claim against Norfolk Police for £500,000.’
