A man has been found guilty of the knifepoint robbery of Mark Cavendish and his wife Peta Todd at their family home in November 2021.

The Chelmsford crown court jury reached its verdict following 14 hours and 35 minutes of deliberation. They found 31-year-old Romario Henry, from Lewisham, guilty of two counts of robbery but delivered a not-guilty verdict for his co-defendant 28-year-old Oludewa Okorosobo from Camberwell.
