Copper's Crown Court trial delayed due to 'witness issues'

A COPPER’S Crown Court trial has been delayed by six months over “witness issues”.

PC Daniel Guest (33), of Hesley Road, Harworth, Doncaster, has been charged with driving dangerously on Shepcote Lane, Sheffield, on November 2, 2017.

Guest, who is based at Rotherham’s Main Street police station, pleaded not guilty to the offence at Leeds Magistrates’ Court in September last year.

He was due to stand trial at Leeds Crown Court on Monday (March 11) but his three-day trial was adjourned until September 23.

A Crown Court representative said the adjournment was due to “witness issues”.
