THREE men – two of them brothers – are facing trial after a robbery at a Ripon shop.

Daniel James Bettles-Hall, 24, of Aismunderby Road, Ripon, appeared before Harrogate magistrates on Tuesday accused jointly with two other men of robbing Alex Wood at Motor World on Westgate, Ripon, of electrical items valued at a total of £1,299.07 on December 6.

When Bettles-Hall was sent for trial at York Crown Court, where he will make an initial appearance on Monday, he was granted unconditional bail.

The court heard his brother David Keith Bettles-Hall, 29, of Station Road, Stainforth, Doncaster, had already been sent for trial.

And the court was told there were no details available on when a third man named in the charge was due to appear.
