Not Guilty: London Visitor Cleared Of Damaging Ghandi Statue

A Milton Keynes man has been cleared of damaging a landmark statue of Ghandi, but convicted of having cannabis and assaulting a cop after his arrest.

Jobless Simon Francis Bradley, 33, of Felbridge, Kents Hill did not even turn up for his trial and will now suffer cuts to his benefits after being fined.

He always denied the charges and was cleared of causing criminal damage to the statue of the Indian independence leader in Tavistock Squre, Bloomsbury on July 17, last year.

Bradley was also found not guilty of threatening behaviour at the same place.

However, he was convicted at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court of possessing cannabis in Tavistock Square and was fined £100, with £100 costs and ordered to pay a £30 victim surcharge.

Bradley was taken to Holborn Police Station where he was convicted of assaulting PC Basill on the same day and fined £100 and ordered to pay £100 compensation to the officer.
