Who has appeared in court in Tameside recently?

Tameside Magistrates' Court in Ashton.

A man charged with kidnap attempt, drivers banned for drink driving and charges for assault have been among the latest cases heard by Tameside Magistrates' Court.

Here's our latest round-up...

Charged with kidnap attempt and assaults

A man has been charged following a collision in Hyde which saw two police officers assaulted as well as an attempted kidnap.

Kade Bagnall, 25, of Valentine Street, Failsworth, has been charged with two counts of attempted kidnap, theft without consent, two counts of assault on an emergency worker, common assault, and possession of a bladed article.

The charges follow an incident on Wednesday last week when Greater Manchester Police were called to reports of a collision between a moped and a car on Hattersley Road West.

Following the collision, the moped rider got into the car and threatened the driver with a knife, asking him to drive off. When the driver refused, the moped rider got out of the car, and assaulted a police officer who had arrived before making off.

The moped rider then approached a car engineer who was working on a car on Pudding Lane and pushed him, before attempting to make off in the vehicle.

Following this, he then got into a Corsa car on Honiton Avenue, which was being driven by a 56-year-old woman, and threatened her to drive.

The woman fled from the car and the moped rider made off in it before abandoning the vehicle on Abbey Gardens and getting onto a bus.

Police stopped the bus and the moped rider attempted to escape through the emergency door but was pursued by police and detained.

The moped rider was taken to hospital with a number of injuries believed to have been caused from the initial collision, but while there assaulted a second police officer.

Both police officers received minor injuries which did not require hospital treatment. No-one else reported any injuries.
