Carlisle teen damaged door of charity he wanted help from

A troubled Carlisle teenager has admitted damaging a door during a disturbance at the offices of a charity to which he had gone for help.

Luke Clark, 18, of Orfeur Street, Carlisle, pleaded guilty at the city’s Crown Court to charges of affray and criminal damage.

It followed a disturbance at the Warwick Road building of United Response, a charity that provides a range of services for people with learning difficulties, mental health needs or physical disabilities.

Clark, who is now being cared for at a psychiatric hospital in Morpeth, Northumberland, appeared in the dock flanked by two nurses.

His barrister Keith Thomas said he had “severe learning difficulties”.

Clark was remanded on bail for background reports.

He will be sentenced on September 11.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
