Allegedly wielding a kitchen knife with an eight inch long blade in central Helston has landed a Shropshire man in court.

Jowan Townsend Trehair, of Coronation Street in Bridgnorth, stands accused of carrying the blade and unlawfully and maliciously wounding Samuel Croft on July 28 last year.

The 19-year-old defendant will next appear at Truro Crown Court on March 28 for a trial to take place.
