A MAN has appeared in court after a ten-hour incident on a bridge near the town's Alexandra Hospital.

Dean Tambling appeared before magistrates in Worcester on Wednesday (March 5) charged with causing a public nuisance by standing on the bridge and threatening to harm himself to avoid arrest, causing traffic congestion and other disruption which affected the town's infrastructure during Monday (March 3).

The incident took place at the bridge near to Kingsley College and the Alex on Woodrow Drive.

The 24-year-old, formerly of Winslow Close, was also charged with assaulting a police constable in the execution of his duty, possessing an offensive weapon - a claw hammer - in a public place and the theft of cigarettes, alcohol and chocolate worth £33.64 from the BP garage at Washford Drive.

Tambling did not enter pleas and will appear at Worcester Crown Court on June 23. He was released on bail on the condition he lives at an address in Kenilworth Close.
