A man has appeared in court charged with possession of a class B drug and dangerous driving after allegedly ramming a police van in Preston, say police.


Andrew Eccles, aged 19, from Raven Street, Preston appeared before Preston magistrates court on September 11.

He pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and was ordered to pay a fine of £80, a victim surcharge of £30 and costs of £70.

He denied a charge of dangerous driving and the case was sent for trial at Preston Crown Court.

Eccles was released on bail until he next appears at the county crown court on October 10.
