Twelve people have been convicted over an armed attack on a prison van in Salford that freed two prisoners.
A gang forced the van to stop on the city's Regent Road on 30 April last year. Three masked men smashed the window, hit the driver, and forced him to release Ryan McDonald and Stephen McMullen.
A total of 12 men and women were convicted of a mix of charges ranging from assisting an offender, to conspiracy to escape, to firearms offences.
