Nigel Richardson represented actress Linda Henry who plays Shirley Carter in EastEnders. Linda was charged with racially aggravated abusive behaviour following a dispute with a London Borough of Greenwich street warden. After a full trial at Bexley Magistrates Court on 11 February Linda was found not guilty by the District Judge who found there was ‘no evidence to corroborate what the street warden said’. As part of the preparation for her case we gathered character references from many people who know Linda and spoke highly of her including other members of the cast such as Di Parish (Denise) and Lindsey Coulson (Carol).
