THREE people have appeared in court charged with contravening the requirements of an environment permit.

Forty-five year-old Jason Butterworth, of Industrial Street, Todmorden, as well as his brother Mark Butterworth, 50, and Jane Hoyland, 46, both of Gladstone Buildings in Mytholmroyd, gave no indication of plea to the charges relating to Spring Wood Mill on Pudsey Road in Cornholme, Todmorden. The alleged offences took place between July 2010 and February 2011.

They will next appear before a Crown Court judge in Bradford to enter pleas to the charges on March 6.
