A 52-year-old man has been charged in connection with a neighbourhood dispute in Stevenage – which saw one person threatened with a hammer.

Carl Adaway, from Holly Copse, was charged with using threatening words or behaviour with intent to cause fear and provoke unlawful violence.

The incident, which occurred on Thursday, July 30, saw a number of residents in Holly Copse verbally and physically threatened.

The 52-year-old was remanded in custody last week and is scheduled to appear at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, September 15.
