Farm raid charges

TWO men accused of a farm raid in Denwick will appear at Newcastle Crown Court later this month.

Abie Michael Mark Stewart, 29, of Fairholm, Newcastle, and John Paul Naisbitt, 34, of Devon Street, Hetton-le-Hole, both face a charge of aggravated burglary and one of conspiracy to steal, while Stewart has also been charged with dangerous driving and no insurance.

Both men faced magistrates in Alnwick yesterday and have been remanded in custody, where they will remain until they appear at crown court on Wednesday.
