The Northern Echo - 9th December 2009

TWO friends wrongly suspected of being poachers were assaulted and threatened by gamekeepers when they got lost on an authorised shooting trip, a court heard. Michael Collins and Luke Doyle travelled to the North Yorkshire Dales in February to hunt rabbits on land belonging to the father [of] a university colleague.

Mr Wearmouth, of Keepers Cottage, Gunnerside, near Richmond; Mr MacLean, 31, of Richmond; and Mr Williams, 23, of Thirley, Gunnerside, all deny affray. Mr Williams also denies a charge of possessing a firearm with intent to cause a fear of violence during the same incident, in the early hours of February 28.
