Hayden Oakes, 79, of Robin Hood Lane in Wrightington, stood before borough justices to enter not guilty to charges that on December 30 he drove a Peugeot car without due care and attention on Miles Lane, Appley Bridge, that he damaged a garden wall there and failed to stop or report the matter to police.

The case was adjourned until September 26 for a trial at the same court.
