A MAN who stripped naked before supergluing himself to a desk at a Job Centre is to face trial.

Ian John Robinson, 43, of Green Lane, Skipsea, has been charged with causing criminal damage to a work station, desk and chair at Job Centre Plus, on Quay Road, in Bridlington, and with using threatening words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress at the job centre, all relating to October 4.

At Bridlington magistrates court last Wednesday he pleaded not guilty to both charges.

During the brief hearing Mr Robinson placed a book entitled “Nazis: A Warning from History” on the desk in front of him, but was swiftly told to remove it by magistrates.

Mr Robinson, who was represented by solicitor Ed Cunnah, told the bench the book was a reference to his defence but in turn was informed that today was not his trial.

The bench set his trial date at Bridlington on January 3 next year.

Mr Robinson was given bail on condition he did not approach or enter the Job Centre, on Quay Road, without prior appointment.

Speaking outside court, Mr Robinson said: “I’m prepared to fight for my rights to get sickness and disability allowance”.
