Accused of shop robbery


A 25-year-old man is to stand trial accused of robbery.

Steve Smith, of Bradley Park, is charged with the robbery of Academy Stores on April 9.

It is alleged £105 was stolen during the robbery.

Defence solicitor Seamus Quigley accepted there is a case for Smith to answer.
