Woman cleared of trying to set people on fire

A woman accused of trying to set three people on fire has been acquitted on the instructions of a Supreme Court judge.

Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves ordered a jury to find Ehbony Allen, 30, not guilty of all charges.

Ms Allen, from Warwick, denied allegations that she tried to set three women alight on Christmas Eve outside Southampton Rangers Cricket Club.

A Supreme Court trial began last week, but ended on Monday after defence lawyer Charles Richardson argued prosecutors did not have enough evidence to allow the jury to find his client guilty.
