A grandson has been found guilty of GBH and conspiring to rob his own grandfather but cleared of attempted murder, a jury has ruled.

The 21-year-old appeared at St Albans Crown Court alongside Warren Reid, of Seaton Road in Luton, when the verdict was read out yesterday.

Both Sibley and Reid, 22, were cleared of attempted murder.
