Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

You are of course entitled to your opinion and I think I will leave it at that.

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Kwilkinson is making a similar same mistake as those who think that Grosset has somehow ‘got away with it’. All that we know is that the Procurator Fiscal (which undertakes a similar function in Scotland to that which the CPS does in England) decided that no further action should be taken. This usu...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

I too would be annoyed that the police have dropped the case however going after the wrong guy isn't going to help anyone. The police have said they are not looking for anyone else - in other words, they believe they've got their man but the CPS say the evidence is not sufficient to proceed. That's...

I hope for some of you if you were ever to find yourself wrongly accused of something people are a little more understanding.

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

hi all, Just to let you all know that all charges against Mr Grossett have been dropped. A press release has been issued to that effect although I've not seen anything online as yet but I have heard direct from the family. Mr Grossett and his family have had to deal with a lot of abuse over this inc...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Kieth, thank you for the response, I am pleased that you are now asking people to give their evidence to the police and not to you. I don't want to make any statements on here that I don't have the full facts (I wasn't present at the hearing) and legal understanding (I'm not a lawyer) about but I t...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Kieth, You say you know the accused and believe he is innocent. Why? I believe in innocent until proven guilty and I do not think anyone should be making personal attacks on anyone without conclusive proof, but the facts are that he has been charged with this crime and there must be strong evidence...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Hi Mick, I understand entirely where you are coming from and if someone else had posted what I have I to would be asking the same questions. The accused (sorry I don't want to use names as I don't want to tread on any toes) has been quite outspoken about the road closures and he feels passionately a...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Hi Si, I'm not directly involved in the investigation. The gentleman who has been charged with the sabotage is however a personal friend of mine and I believe him to be innocent. The basis of the police case is that he single handedly put the tacks down on Saturday morning as this is the only time h...

Re: Etape Caledonia vandalised

Hi all, New to the forum - tried posting on Friday but either it's been deleted or I did something wrong. I'm trying to find out if anyone out there cycled over any of the affected route on the Saturday at all? I'm just trying to help establish a timeline for the sabotage. If anyone did you could yo...
