Yesterday in Brighton magistrate's court defendants in the EDO Decommissioners Case
had charges of Burglary dropped and replaced with Conspiracy To Cause Criminal Damage.

The committal hearing of the case formally handed it over to the Crown Court.

Robert Alford who is on remand in Lewes Prison was refused a bail application to reside in Brighton.

Elijah Smith also on remand was moved to a prison in Bristol on Sunday for 'security reasons.'

The CPS said the estimated cost to EDO MBM ITT as a result of the January 17th decommissioning action was now £300,000.

There will be a further pre-trial hearing of the case on May 8th.
