I’ve just read that William Roache, AKA Ken Barlow, has been acquitted on all charges brought against him. From what I’ve been able to glean from the reports of the trial, this has not come as a surprise to me, nor, I suspect, to anyone else who has been studying it.

Coming on top of the farcical trial of Michael Le Vell, another Coronation Street actor, on similar charges, and his acquittal, this must raise very serious questions about the judgment and competence of  the Crown Prosecution Service.

    As a senior detective memorably put it, ‘CPS stands for Couldn’t Prosecute Satan’.
