1 Members of the Carlisle branch of the British National Party have been upset by reports of their involvement in a disturbance in Carlisle earlier this year following one of their meetings.
The misunderstanding came out of a reference in court this week, which was made in error, when it should have referred to a meeting held in Carlisle by the National Front. CFM understands the defence barrister involved has apologised to the court for the mistake.
There's was no implication that any of their members were involved in the disturbance.
2 A man has been found guilty of a sexual assault on a 91-year-old woman patient at a Carlisle care home.
53 year old Bulgarian Neyko Neykov of Ruthella Street in the city carried out the assault on the woman at the Blackwell Vale nursing home where he worked as a cleaner. He was remanded in custody for a month for background reports.
The judge told him he would inevitably be sent to prison for such a serious offence, and he could also be deported.
