Peter Blake accused of armed robbery, is dangerous
Peter Blake, 57 a suspected armed robber walked out of the High Court in London yesterday, in the midst of his historic criminal trial – without a jury – for a 75m robbery in 2004 at a warehouse near Heathrow. This is the fourth trial, which has cost £20m, so far.

Blake (and three co-defendants) was being tried without a jury after the prosecution alleged the jury in the previous Old Bailey trial had been nobbled.

Detective Superintendent Stuart Cundy, of the Flying Squad, said, “Peter Blake is considered as dangerous and we would ask members of the public not to approach Peter Blake, but if they do see him to call 999 immediately,”
