Mr Williams, who was dressed in a grey top, spoke only to confirm his name when he appeared at Peterlee Magistrates’ Court today (Friday, April 25).

He did not plead to a charge of stealing £817 from a female member of staff.

Prosecutor Guy Prest invited magistrates to commit the case to Durham Crown Court.

Mr Williams of Red Rose Terrace, Chester-le-Street, was remanded in custody to appear at Durham Crown Court on May 9.
