Twin brothers and their older sister have appeared in court charged with affray and criminal damage following an incident in Normanton on Thursday (September 24).

Kevin and Michael Price, 24, both of Gibbon Lane, Thorne in Doncaster and Catherine Price, 32, of Westerton Road, Tingley, appeared at Wakefield Magistrates’ Court today.

Ms Price faced a further charge of possession of an offensive weapon - a machete, and Kevin faced a charge of possessing an imitation firearm - a sawn-off shotgun.

Richard Ogden, prosecuting, said the case was “not suitable” to be heard at Magistrates’ Court as it involved “weapons which could have caused serious injury”.

Magistrates agreed the case would be transferred to Leeds Crown Court, where all three defendants will next appear on October 12.

Martyn Lord represented the brothers while mum-of-six Ms Price was represented by Damien Walsh.

Chief magistrate Margaret Bradley granted the siblings bail.

But Mr Ogden appealed the decision.

The trio have been remanded in custody until the outcome of their bail hearing later this week.

Police are appealing for more information about the incident on Queensway, Normanton.
