NICKY Jacobs has been released from prison, the day after he was cleared of killing Pc Keith Blakelock, from Sunderland, during the 1985 Tottenham riots.

He was driven from Belmarsh prison in south east London in a silver saloon after administrative delays that delayed his freedom yesterday were completed.

Speaking outside the prison, his lawyer Tony Meisels said his client was “relieved” to be free after a four-year ordeal.
