Francis Laird: Correction
In last week's "Scuffle of the week" it was inferred that Francis Laird had resorted to violence when subjected to a physical assault at Croydon Crown Court, and that he faced disciplinary action by the Bar Council. We understand that he was the victim of an unprovoked assault by Mr Aina, who has since apologised. Mr Laird has referred the mater to the Bar Council. We would like to apologise to Mr Laird for these errors.
