Cumbria Crack

Man accused of West Cumbria “dangerous driving” to stand trial

Carlisle Crown Court

A MAN who denies an allegation that he drove a vehicle dangerously in West Cumbria is to stand trial.

Ashley James McKay Evans, 27, faced one charge when he appeared in front of a judge at Carlisle Crown Court.

This alleges that, on June 26 this year, he drove a BMW vehicle dangerously on a road – namely the B5295 towards Cleator Moor – dangerously.

Evans, of Sneckyeat Grove, Hensingham, Whitehaven, pleaded not guilty to the allegation during a short hearing.

He is now due to go on trial at the crown court in the week of October 7.

It is estimated this hearing in front of a jury will last around two days.

In the meantime, Evans was granted bail by Judge Simon Medland QC.
