A man who was charged with possession of an article with bladed or a sharp point in a South Oxhey street has been sent for trial.

Matthew Fell , 30, was charged after police were called to Ilkley Road at 7.40pm last Sunday following reports that a man was being aggressive with a meat cleaver.

The Ilkley Road resident was arrested at his home and appeared at Hatfield Remand Court last week.

He remains in custody and has been sent for trial at St Albans Crown Court next Tuesday (August 26).
