A FORMER Crewkerne pub landlord has appeared in court charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Robert Shane Willcox, 56, of Wareham Road, Axminster, attended a preliminary hearing at Taunton Crown Court on Friday.

It follows a stabbing incident outside the Kings Arms pub, in the Market Square, in November last year.

Willcox was bailed with conditions until his next hearing on July 15.
