A MAN has denied the alleged possession of a knife in public following an incident in Workington.
Gary Walsh, 33, faced one charge when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today (MON).
This alleges that he had a bladed article in a public place – Workington’s Purser Road – on August 9.
Walsh pleaded not guilty to the charge, and is due to go on trial at the crown court in the week of November 26.
It is estimated the hearing will last one-and-a-half days.
In the meantime Walsh, of South Street, Fletchertown, was remanded in custody.
