A British National Party activist has been committed to crown court concerning claims he drove a Land Rover at a group of children and
threatened one with a knife.
Former teacher Adam Walker, of Winchester Court, Spennymoor, County Durham, is charged with affray, driving a motor vehicle dangerously and three counts of criminal damage.
Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court yesterday (Friday) committed Mr Walker to Durham Crown Court, on November 7, where he is expected to face a new charge of possession of a bladed article. The 42-year-old has not entered any pleas.
The incident is said to have taken place after a march through Spennymoor, on April 23, by the Spennymoor English Cultural Society, to mark St George's Day.
