Carlisle man charged with eight indecent assaults on boy

A 38-year-old man accused of a string of sex assaults on a boy more than 20 years ago has appeared before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court.

Robert Cook, of Eldon Drive, Harraby, Carlisle, is accused of eight indecent assaults on the boy on dates between 1988 and 1990.

Six of them are alleged to have taken place between October 9, 1988 and October 11, 1990, and the other two between October 10, 1988 and October 11, 1990.

Cook was not asked to enter pleas to the charges but he had previously denied all of them when he appeared before local magistrates.

His barrister Kim Whittlestone told the judge his pleas would be “a firm not guilty”.

Cook is expected to go on trial in July.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
