Seven jailed for plot to bribe jurors in manslaughter trial

Seven men who took part in a plot to bribe jurors in a manslaughter trial have been sentenced to between two and six years in prison.

The conspiracy happened in February as two of the men were on trial for the manslaughter of 88-year-old Betty Laird, who died in car crash which was staged as part of a so-called “cash for crash” scam in Leeds.
