Two men convicted of arson attacks on department stores will ask to have their convictions quashed in the first of a raft of cases that could be overturned due to the involvement of undercover police.
Lawyers for Andrew Clarke and Geoff Sheppard claim they were the victims of a miscarriage of justice when they were found guilty of firebombing branches of Debenhams.
They will renew attempts to get the convictions overturned after a damning report by Mark Ellison QC published yesterday found that information obtained by undercover officers had not been disclosed to defence teams and therefore miscarriages of justice may have occurred.
