Stroud Magistrates' Court

A FOREST of Dean man who denies using ‘Taff’ as a racially abusive term will stand trial.

Lorry driver Michael James Davis, 23, of Blakeney Hill, Lydney is alleged to have shouted the word during a fracas involving his brother, police and doormen in Lydney on January 25.

He has already pleaded not guilty to one charge of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress.

Today at Stroud Magistrates' Court, a trial date of September 5 was set for Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court.
