Cumbrian man still too ill to go back to Carlisle court

A man who had to be taken to hospital a fortnight ago after suffering chest pains before a scheduled appearance in front of a judge at Carlisle Crown Court is still too ill to go back to court.

Colin Robley, 61, of Tree Tops, Nenthead, Alston Moor, was due in court on September 23 to enter pleas to three charges he faced.

But he was taken ill shortly after arriving at court and had to be taken by ambulance to the accident and emergency department at the Cumberland Infirmary.

Robley was due back in court yesterday but was still not well enough to attend.

His barrister Tim Evans explained he had spent a week in hospital after suffering a stroke and was still too ill to leave his home.

“He has had considerable ill health involving his heart in the past,” he said.

The case was adjourned, this time until November 26, by which time it is hoped Robley will be well enough to be there.

The charges he faces are: handling a stolen air rifle belonging to Keith Leisk at Alston on April 1; producing cannabis, a class B drug, at Alston between January 1 and March 31; and possessing 630g of cannabis resin with intent to supply it on April 1.
