    Christian Concern (CC)

    Only a week after Mike Overd and Michael Stockwell’s public order convictions were overturned at Bristol Crown Court, another street preacher was acquitted of a public order offence charge in July.

    Andrew Frost was acquitted at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court. Christian Legal Centre’s Andrea Williams described the result as a ‘fantastic victory for freedom of speech and the freedom to share the life-giving news of the gospel’.
