Photographer trial delayed

Have your say

A PHOTOGRAPHER charged with a public order offence will have to wait weeks until his trial.

Clayton Bennett, of Cedar Terrace, Fence Houses, is alleged to have threatened his pregnant wife Rose-Ellen’s ex-partner, Mark Fry, in Peterlee town centre on December 5.

The 50-year-old, who has sparked fury from newlyweds because of alleged shoddy photographic and video coverage of their big day, denies the charge.

Bennett is representing himself in the trial, which was due to go ahead at Peterlee Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

However, it was rearranged for June 13, after some of the six witnesses were unable to attend.
