Trio admit affray charge

THREE men from Silloth have admitted being involved in a violent incident in the town which left another man with multiple injuries.

All three pleaded guilty to a charge of affray at Carlisle Crown Court.

A charge of causing actual bodily harm to their victim – Ozer Sehzade – was dropped by the prosecution on the grounds that it was not clear which of them was responsible for his many, fortunately minor, injuries.

Prosecuting barrister Tim Evans said that the incident on July 20 had been “a rather confused state of affairs” and most of the evidence came from Mr Sehzade himself.

Before the court were Christopher Holliday, 31, of Fell Close, Silloth; Joshua William Ray, 19, of Wampool Street, Silloth and Martyn Marshall, 22, of no fixed address.

Holliday and Ray were allowed bail but Marshall was remanded in custody.

They will be sentenced on May 28 after background reports have been drawn up.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
