Two in court for robbery

TWO people from Lancaster have appeared in court in connection with a street robbery in which £12,000 was taken from a couple. The victims had the money stolen on Pedder Street, Morecambe, in June last year.

Josephine Smith, 26, of Mayfield Avenue and Darren O’Connor, 45, of Ripon Avenue, pleaded not guilty to robbery at Preston Crown Court on Monday.

The case has been adjourned for trial on September 19. The pair received unconditional bail.
