[A] MAN accused of possessing a kitchen knife in a West Cumbria shopping centre car park has appeared in court.
Craig Berry, 35, faces a total of four charges. At Carlisle Crown Court today (MON) he pleaded not guilty to allegations of affray and having a bladed article in the car park of Dunmail Park, Workington.
Berry also denied two charges which allege that he perverted the course of public justice. One is said to have occurred on May 15 and the other on May 24.
It is alleged he attempted to persuade Stephen Logan not to give evidence against him, firstly by phone and later by approaching him.
Appearing in court with Berry was Paul Jason Jones, 30, of The Gables, Great Clifton. Jones denies one perverting the course of justice allegation.
Both Berry and Jones are due to stand trial on September 27. In the meantime they were remanded in custody by Judge Tony Lancaster.
