Ryan Giggs’ assault trial has been postponed again to test for deadly asbestos in the
against ex-girlfriend Kate Greville, 36, at their £1.7million home in Worsley, Gtr
Manchester. He faces an additional assault charge against her sister Emma during the
same evening on November 1, 2020, following a night out.
Giggs faced trial in January but it was postponed for seven months due to a backlog of
cases caused by Covid.
It was due to start on Monday but Manchester Crown Court has been forced to close
for two weeks to test for asbestos.
A potential site of the carcinogen was discovered in the basement of the 1960s
It’s understood a routine asbestos survey identified a need for further tests but so far
no airborne asbestos particles have been found.
The court will only be re-opened when it has been declared safe.
It was initially closed for one week last Friday but this has now been increased to two.
A hearing will take place on Thursday at Manchester Magistrates’ Court to decide
whether the trial can be moved to another court, or if it will be delayed again.
