No new charges were brought against Mr Dragon when he appeared before Huntingdon magistrates on Thursday (January 23). A trial date was set at the Huntingdon court for March 26.

Mr Dragon was released on conditional bail and is permitted from contacting Cllr Hensley or visiting an address in Warboys.
