Man in Carlisle court on four charges of assault

A man from Whitehaven has appeared before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court on four charges of assault.

Rhys Mason, 23, of Peter Street, faced two charges arising from incidents involving his partner last year and three after another incident with different alleged victims this year.

He is charged with assaulting Leanne Dixon, causing her actual bodily harm, in May and October last year.

He is also charged with wounding Rebecca Clements, causing her grievous bodily harm, and assaulting Malcolm Riley by beating him – both on February 8 this year.

He is further charged with affray arising from that incident.

At a brief preliminary hearing before Judge Barbara Forrester Mason spoke only to confirm his name.

He will not enter pleas to the five charges he faces until he next appears in court, on April 22.

He was remanded in custody.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
