Brothers to face trial after robbing man of milk in Cumbrian town

Two brothers are to go on trial in the summer accused of robbing a man of a carton of milk.

Martin Thompson, 28, and Kevin Thompson, 32, are alleged to have committed the offence in Whitehaven town centre on the afternoon of July 26 last year.

At Carlisle Crown Court they both pleaded not guilty to robbing Colin McAlpine and causing him grievous bodily harm with intent to do so.

They also denied a less serious alternative charge of stealing the milk from Mr McAlpine.

Martin Thompson's address was listed on court records as Patterdale Avenue, Whitehaven; Kevin Thompson's was given as Swallowcroft, Dean, near Workington.

The pair were remanded on bail to await their trial, which is expected to take up to four days, starting on June 16.

About 12 witnesses are likely to give evidence at the trial.
