Man Cleared of £26.5 million bank robbery

I missed this in last week's news. This is the Northern Bank robbery in Belfast of which the IRA have been accused and Sinn Fein have denied involvement. Evidence against an individual alleged by prosecutors to be the "inside man" turns out to have been circumstantial and open to a totally different interpretation, so prosecution withdrawn and he has been declared innocent.
