In court on theft charge

A MAN entered no plea when he appeared in court accused of stealing two rings worth £1,100 from his ex-girlfriend’s mum.

It is alleged Christopher Whittaker, 43, of Smithy Bridge Road, Littleborough, took the jewellery from Anne Sheehan’s home at Ramsden Wood, Todmorden, between April and May last year.

He was bailed to appear at Bradford Crown Court in June.
