Man who denies alleged Windermere knife possession to stand trial

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] MAN accused of possessing a knife in public on a Windermere street is due to stand trial later this year.

Richard Amphlett, 44, entered a plea of not guilty to one allegation when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

Amphlett denied the alleged possession of a bladed article – a knife – in a public place, namely Oak Street in Windermere, without good reason or lawful authority on April 28.

Amphlett was told his trial – estimated to last a day – would take place at the crown court.

Judge James Adkin said to the defendant: “A Carlisle jury will have to decide why you were in possession of a bladed article on July 12, which is when the case will be listed.”

In the meantime Amphlett, of Oakleigh Road, Stourbridge, Dudley, was granted unconditional bail by the judge.
