Man denies Blakelock riot murder

A man has denied the murder of Pc Keith Blakelock, who died during the Broadwater Farm riots in 1985.

Nicholas Jacobs, 45, 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 looked straight in front of him as he spoke the words "not guilty" at the Old Bailey.

Jacobs was remanded in custody and will face trial early next year.
