A teenager accused of robbery and possessing an offensive weapon has been released on bail by a judge.

Leon Saunders is said to have had a pair of scissors in Newlands Road, Corsham, on Wednesday, December 5.

The 19-year-old, of no fixed abode, is also accused of carrying out the robbery on the same day.

No charges were formally put to him and he did not enter any pleas during the brief hearing at Swindon Crown Court.

Judge Euan Ambrose adjourned the case to Friday, March 22 and released Saunders on bail until then.
