A MAN accused of illegal knife possession in Carlisle has appeared in front of a judge.

Nathan Young faces one charge arising out of an incident on October 22.

It is alleged he was in possession with a Stanley knife, in public at Margaret Creighton Gardens in the city, “without good reason or lawful authority”.

When he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court, 30-year-old Young pleaded not guilty to the allegation.

This hearing is due to start at the crown court in the week of September 2.

In the meantime, Young was granted bail by Judge James Adkin.
