Two young Denton residents have been cleared of plotting to conduct a US-style high school massacre. We are pleased to report that they live in Denton, Manchester, not here in Norfolk.
This rather bizarre case saw two teenagers accused of planning an attack on teachers and fellow-students at Audenshaw High School, based on a real incident at Columbine, Colorado in 1999. However the jury accepted the boys’ claims that they were merely indulging in “fantasy” and threw out the prosecution.
Liz Cargill and Jennie Crowhill returned safely from their marathon charity cyle ride round the Dentons of England on Saturday. They achieved their target of visiting eight other Dentons on time and ended up with a heroes’ welcome at the Village Hall.
Further details of their route, their experiences etc. can be found on the special page in the Features Section.
Liz Cargill and Jennie Crohill, have set off on their extended charity cycle ride.
They were seen off from the Village Hall by a group of supporters on Sunday, 30th August, to ride to Norwich Station. From there they are taking the train to Darlington so that the ride proper can start on Monday.
For a picture of their departure and further information about the ride go to the special page in the Features Section. Regular updates on their progress are being posted on that page.
