|News, Violent crime

Suzanne Llewellyn, Chief Crown Prosecutor of CPS East Midlands said: “Following the events in Nottingham on Tuesday 13 June 2023, the Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Nottinghamshire police to charge Valdo Calocane, 31, with three counts of murder and three of attempted murder.

“The CPS made the decision after reviewing a file of evidence relating to the events in the city of Nottingham in the early hours of Tuesday morning, where two students and a school caretaker lost their lives and three others were injured.

“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families and friends of all those involved in this tragic incident and we wish those still receiving care a speedy recovery.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Calocane are active and that he has a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”
