[A] DEVOTED annual Appleby fair visitor has admitted being involved in a plot to commit violence.
Alan Reynolds Cheyanne Tunney, 33, appeared via a prison video link at Carlisle Crown Court today (MON).
Tunney pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiring with others to commit a violent disorder, between 1st and 8th June this year.
No details of the offence were outlined during a 25-minute hearing in front of Judge Peter Davies.
But it was said that while Tunney did admit the crime, there had been no intent on his part to cause any trouble at an historic Appleby event which he had attended every year since his birth.
Judge Davies adjourned the hearing until next Monday, when Tunney is due to be sentenced for the offence.
On that day, police are expected to apply for a criminal behaviour order to prevent him attending Appleby fair for the foreseeable future.
In the meantime Tunney, of Bentley, Doncaster, was remanded in custody.
