Two people have been cleared of conspiring to help a murder suspect escape from custody.

John Anslow, 33, was on his way to court in Stafford last year when he was sprung from his secure van, Woolwich Crown Court heard.

Anslow's partner, Samantha Glover, 27, of Tipton, and Craig Wright, 29, of no fixed address, were found not guilty on Friday.

The jury was unable to reach a decision over Daniel Morgan, 29, of Birmingham.

A spokesperson for West Mercia Police said the force and the Crown Prosecution Service were "deciding whether they want to retry the case" in the respect of Mr Morgan, of Parkeston Crescent.

Anslow, who has admitted conspiring to escape from custody, was arrested in Cyprus on 14 March this year and deported to the UK.

Last week, two men were convicted of conspiring to help him escape custody.
