Tractor scare man pleads not guilty

A 64-YEAR-OLD man has pleaded not guilty to driving without consideration to other users after his tractor spooked some horses.

Sinclair Robson, of New Haggerston Farm, Beal, is accused of driving past the horses despite warnings that he was scaring the horses, which resulted in one rider falling off and being dragged along the road and another horse bolting.

The incident took place on Saturday, September 3, on the C-class road between the A1 and New Haggerston.

Robson was not present at Berwick Magistrates’ Court last Thursday but a not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf by his solicitor Geoffrey Forrester.

The case was adjourned until January 17 for the trial.
