James Scobie QC represented Tokyi Ajibola, otherwise known as Trapstar Toxic, in his trial over an alleged gang-related "tit-for-tat" shooting.

Mr Ajibola was cleared of two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm.

Earlier this month Trapstar Toxic released a YouTube video called 'Out Ere'which has clocked up more than 300,000 views in 10 days.

He is seen grinning at the main doors of the Old Bailey as he shakes hands with Mr Scobie who smiles and walks away.

At the end of the video, Trapstar Toxic also gives a "shout out" to his lawyers.
