A MAN who was arrested on suspicion of a string of offences in Colchester is due to appear in court.

Danny Mawer, of no fixed address, was charged with actual bodily harm, possessing a bladed article, dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, failing to provide a specimen, and driving with no insurance after he was arrested last Tuesday.

The 40-year-old was remanded in custody and will appear before magistrates in Basildon on Wednesday, Essex Police said.
