Carlisle man admits ABH in row over music

A man has admitted reacting violently towards a neighbour who went round to his house to complain about his music.

Martyn Symes, 28, was charged after an incident at his home in Rashdall Road, Morton, Carlisle, on March 9.

At the city’s Crown Court he pleaded guilty to causing Christopher Cowell actual bodily harm.

But he did so on a basis that was not accepted by the prosecution, so the two men will give evidence at a fact-finding hearing so a judge can decide exactly what happened.

Symes claims the trouble was started by Mr Cowell, but the prosecution says Symes knocked Mr Cowell to the ground and kicked him.

The issue will be resolved in the week of October 22.

In the meantime, Symes was allowed bail.
