A pensioner who was previously arrested by police on suspicion of murder after taking on two intruders, who tried to rob his flower shop, will not face charges.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said earlier today (September 7) that florist Cecil Coley, 72, will not face a court for stabbing to death one of the robbers as he defended himself in his business, which he has run in Old Trafford in Manchester for 40 years.
The CPS has also concluded that he should not face any charges for injuring a second man who was stabbed in the incident.
Nazir Afzal, chief crown prosecutor for the North West Area said “It is difficult to envisage a more frightening set of circumstances than these. Four men, armed with guns and a knife, forced their way into the shop as Mr Coley was locking up. Mr Coley received a number of injuries, including a serious facial injury, and his friend was knocked unconscious. At some point in the incident one of the guns, a blank firing pistol, was fired.

Thankfully the CPS saw sense! This is brilliant news.
Evil burst in to this 72 year old man’s shop, armed and ready to cause death and destruction and got more than they bargained for, brought down by a pensioner.
I wish you all the best Mr Coley. Keep it moving sir.
