Prosecutors drop Barry Swain assault case


There’s been another blow for Leeds pest controller Barry Swain, whose troubles we have highlighted.

An animal rights extremist who was due in court accused of assaulting Barry is off the hook.

At Leeds Magistrates Court on 17 November 2020, Crown Prosecution Services decided not to go ahead with a criminal case against the anti because, Barry says, Barry appears too happy in a video of the incident. If Barry had been angry, police could have taken away his guns – which they did anyway.
