A provisional trial date has been set at the Old Bailey for a 44-year-old man charged with the murder of Pc Keith Blakelock during the Broadwater Farm riots in 1985.
Nicholas Jacobs is accused of killing the 40-year-old officer, who was stabbed as he tried to protect firefighters tackling a blaze at a supermarket at the height of the unrest in Tottenham, north London.
Jacobs appeared at the court via video-link from Belmarsh prison in south east London, and a provisional trial date was set for March 4 next year.
