Cumbrian man accused of assaulting elderly parents

A Longtown man has appeared before magistrates in Carlisle accused of assaulting his elderly parents.

Francis Tinning, 56, from Mossband, denies two charges of common assault: one against his 80-year-old father, also called Francis, and one against his mother Margaret Alison Tinning, 80. He is alleged to have assaulted them on December 13.

Tinning, granted unconditional bail, will face trial at the Rickergate court in Carlisle on February 21.

I don't believe hospitals in Cumbria will ever achieve the excellence they've promised
