A Stevenage man who worked at a children’s summer camp has appeared in court charged with child neglect and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Tal Landsman, of Admiral Drive, did not plead when he appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The 25-year-old appeared alongside two other people charged with similar offences. Also in the dock was the camp’s director Ben Lewis.

Mr Lewis, 25, is charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice and of child neglect.

Mr Lewis, of Lullington Garth in Borehamwood, is also accused of three offences in connection with indecent images of children.

At the hearing Mr Landsman was bailed with the other two defendants and Mr Lewis will remain in custody until they appear before St Albans Crown Court on Friday, October 23.

All four people worked or were connected with LL Camps in Borehamwood until it was shut indefinitely by Ofsted in August.
