A 30-year-old has pleaded not guilty to possessing a large metal wrench as an offensive weapon, resisting a constable, and failing to provide a speciman of breath.

Michael Smith, of Chelmsford Drive, Grantham, denies all of the charges alleged to have taken place on January 25.

After some discussion on whether the case should be sent to the crown court, magistrates agreed to retain jurisdiction and the case will now go to trial on May 6. Smith remains on unconditional bail.
