Alison Pryor secured an acquittal in a case involving alleged affray  and possession of an offensive weapon (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/terrifying-video-shows-moment-man-4202059; http://www.itv.com/news/london/2014-09-12/man-wielding-huge-knife-attacks-cyclist-on-a-busy-street-in-front-of-terrified-eyewitnesses/). The defendant, a café owner, was arrested after his premises   were attacked by anti-Fascist protestors. It followed a war of attrition spanning several months in which the Vegan restaurateur became the victim of an Internet and leafleting campaign falsely alleging that he associated with known Fascists. It took a jury at Blackfriars Crown Court less than an hour to acquit him on both counts.
