THREE men have appeared before magistrates charged with causing another to fear unlawful violence.

Ben Mark Crabtree, 21, and Lee Mitchell, 24, both of Turmer Avenue, Bridlington, and Alistair Steven Marritt, 28, of Main Street, North Frodingham, all pleaded not guilty to using words or behaviour likely to cause Thomas Thompson to fear that unlawful violence would be used against him in Bridlington on September 21 last year.

The case was adjourned until Thursday February 3 for a pre-trial review. All three were released on unconditional bail.
