A Derry man charged in connection with the conflict in Syria has been formally found not guilty of all charges.

Eamon Bradley (29) of Benview Estate in Derry was charged with attending a terrorist trading camp in Syria and receiving training in weapons and a grenade. The charges were said to have occurred between March and September 2014.

Following two trials a jury was unable to decide on a verdict.

At today's sitting of Derry Crown Court a jury was sworn in and a prosecution barrister told the court he was offering no evidence.

Bradley was then free to go.
