Private investigators cleared in da Vinci case

Two private investigators from Lancashire were cleared of a conspiracy to extort £4.25m from the estate of the Duke of Buccleuch for the return of the Leonardo da Vinci painting The Madonna of the Yarnwinder.

The verdicts of ‘not proven’ against Robert Graham and John Doyle followed a trial in Scotland which “should never have gone to court”, according to Robert Graham.
