Prisoners guilty of riot plot

Five former Strangeways prisoners were convicted by a jury at Manchester Crown Court yesterday of plotting to cause grievous bodily harm to prison and police officers and conspiracy to riot.

Kevin Gee, 27; Glynn Williams, 29; Mark Williams, 24; Anthony Bush, 27; and David Bowen, 29, denied the charges. The jury was sent to spend a fourth night in a hotel after failing to reach verdicts on the seven others on trial.
