Man charged with £8,000 train tickets fraud

A man has appeared before magistrates accused of masterminding a fraud involving train tickets bought in Carlisle and worth nearly £8,000.

Scott Deakin, 19, is accused of three similar offences involving the use of a stolen bank card to buy tickets at the city’s railway station in August last year.

The largest amount involved related to an alleged offence on August 21, when according to the prosecution Deakin used an invalid bank card to obtain tickets worth £7,010 intending to make a gain through making a false representation.

The other two offences are said to have happened on August 8, involving tickets worth £3.90, and on August 30, involving tickets valued at £984.

Magistrates sent the case to Carlisle Crown Court, where Deakin, from Ashton-on-Ribble, Preston, will enter his pleas on August 4.

Do decorative lights in town centres make a difference to the way you feel about Christmas?

Certainly. I don't feel the season has started until after the big switch-on

These days I don't think they're worth the expense

Love them - but they shouldn't be switched on until December
