Three Blackpool men have been cleared of conning more than £330,000 from the public who believed they were donating to injured servicemen and women.

William Knight, 51, John Wadsworth, 46, and Patrick Jarrett, 49, were acquitted of conspiracy to defraud and possession of criminal property.

Preston Crown Court heard allegations they kept raffle proceeds for the Wounded Warrior Project UK Ltd.

The charges related to sales between December 2009 and June 2010.

Former Paratrooper Mr Knight, of Midgeland Road, Mr Wadsworth, of Church Street and Mr Jarrett, of Teal Court, all denied the charges.
