Tynedale: News in brief

A WOMAN has been charged after a man was stabbed in the leg outside Hexham’s Tesco store.

The 31-year-old man received hospital treatment following the incident, on August 27, last year.

Elizabeth Campbell (62), of Elizabeth Crescent, Dudley, North Tyneside, has been charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.

She will appear at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, January 31.

A 44-year-old man, who had earlier been arrested in connection with the incident, has been released without further action.

A FIRE crew from Hexham was called to Riding Mill on Tuesday afternoon to help the ambulance service rescue a man who had injured his leg.

The 34-year-old was among a group surveying trees on slopes at Sandy Bank when he slipped and fell.

Firefighters used ropes and a specialist stretcher to reach the injured man. He was taken by ambulance to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary with a suspected broken leg.

CHILDREN at Hedley-on-the-Hill were left heart-broken when their snowmen were attacked.

The Feathers Inn organised a snowman competition to occupy youngsters during school closures on Monday and Tuesday, and several children and parents took part.

But three of the snowmen were later destroyed and their natty winter wear – of a hat, scarf, and gloves – was stolen.
