But a jury heard there was no CCTV of suspects or any evidence found at the scene.

And texts sent earlier to Fairbairn were traced to two pay-as-you-go phones allegedly bought on his behalf.

He is also accused of falsely claiming that gangsters were targeting him and Gillian, 66.

Prosecutor Nathan Rasiah QC said police raided a barn next to his property near Royston, Cambs, in 2020 and found 1,033 cannabis plants which, if grown, would be worth £867,000.

A bag with a stun gun, revolver and bullets was in an office.

A month later, he suffered a gunshot wound.

The Cambridge crown court jury heard that he admits illegally possessing weapons but denies perverting justice and letting premises be used for cannabis production.

Kathy Beale star Gillian called off her wedding to Fairbairn in 2019.

The trial continues.
