All four were due to appear before Bow Street magistrates on 23/12/02 however,

David Sherwood (46) from Whittonstall, Northumberland, was charged with being drunk and disorderly. Sherwood who is the kennel man with the Braes of Derwent Hunt did not appear in court and did not enter a plea but had written to the clerk explaining he could not afford the travel costs.

Veterinary surgeon David J Dugdale (41) from Freckenham, Suffolk, was been charged under Section 4 of the Public Order Act after being arrested for using threatening words and behaviour. He pleaded not guilty.

Salesman Marcus Wright (28) from Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, was charged with assault on a police officer. He did not enter a plea and was bailed to reappear on 13/1/03.

Student George Todhunter Bramley (20) from Gillingham, Norfolk, was charged with breach of cordon and demonstrating in a non-designated area. Bramley also wrote to the court telling of travel difficulties but pleased not guilty in his absence. He was bailed until 6/1/03

Of the remaining four who were arrested, no further action will be taken against a 14-year-old boy from South Molton, Devon, arrested in possession of an offensive weapon, and a 28-year-old man from Stagshaw Bank, Northumberland, arrested for breach of the peace. A 23-year-old man has received a formal caution following his arrest for theft and a 31-year-old man has received a formal warning following his arrest for highway obstruction.
