A PEMBROKESHIRE COUNCIL bin man will stand trial for allegedly obstructing a train.
He pleaded not guilty at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court today after saying that he was reasonably going about his employment when he held his hand up to stop the train as he and his bin lorry attempted to cross the tracks.

The defendant was not present at court, but his defence solicitor Mr Mike Kelleher entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
The trial date is set for June 22.
