On the fifth of January 1967, at 5.15am a collier heading home from his shift at South Hetton Colliery, County Durham. discovered the body of a man slumped in the back of a Mark X Jaguar. He had been shot three times at point blank range. By the following night, two men, Dennis Stafford and Michael Luvaglio were charged with the murder of Angus Stuart Sibbet. The two men, both colleagues of the victim have always proclaimed their innocence and insisted that the three were friends. Based on original transcripts from the trial, witness statements and evidence that would come to light after the trial, this book sets out to state the facts and let readers decide for themselves, whether or not they believe that there may have been a serious miscarriage of justice. The lack of forensic evidence and the heavy reliance on circumstantial evidence may be seen to throw doubt onto the verdicts. What really happened, and what was the reason Sibbet was killed? This would become one of the most infamous gangland murder cases of 60s Britain. It was a time when nightclubs, gambling and cabaret, were becoming prevalent in society. But also a time when criminals would try to gain control of a city’s venues.
"Sibbet loved to surround himself with the celebrity guests,he counted several of them as personal friends".
