Pair admit Dalglish grenade plot
Wednesday 04 November 2009
Two men have admitted their part in a plot which saw a hand grenade left outside the home of football legend Kenny Dalglish.
The Army bomb squad had to be called to the Merseyside home of the former Liverpool and Blackburn manager when the live explosive device was found by police last July.
Dalglish (58), now Liverpool FC's academy director, and his wife Marina (55), who runs a cancer charity, were not the intended targets and were not at the Birkdale house when the grenade was found.
Mark Johnston (21), of Maqueen Street, Old Swan, Liverpool, and Carl Higgins (29), of Helston Green, Huyton, Merseyside, pleaded guilty at Liverpool Crown Court yesterday to conspiring to damage property and being reckless as to whether lives were endangered.
Johnston and Higgins will be sentenced on February 1 and were remanded in custody.
