Man admits Carlisle park attack

A second man has admitted his part in an attack involving a couple in a park.

Antony Hext, of Chertsey Bank, Harraby, Carlisle, admitted assaulting a man after an incident in Melbourne Park, Botcherby.

A couple, a 30-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman, were set upon as they walked across the park last May.

At Carlisle Crown Court, Hext, 19, denied assault occasioning actual bodily harm but admitted common assault.

A second man, Grant Stewart, of Lindisfarne Street, off London Road, earlier admitted his involvement in the attack.

Judge Barbara Forrester adjourned the case until March 13 for reports.

New law allows police to stop drivers and test for the influence of drugs. Will it work?

It must. Drug-driving, like drink-driving, is a killer

How can it? New law keeps giving police more to do, while police numbers are being cut. Madness!

There's no evidence of law preventing use of mobile phones in cars working, so why would it?
