A MAN from Barrow is to stand trial accused of breaking Covid-19 travel regulations.

Dean McClarey, of Chester Street, has been charged with failing to provide the necessary documentation on landing at Manchester Airport, having travelled from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, on March 11, 2021.

The 38-year-old is charged with two counts – one of failing without reasonable excuse to provide passenger information on his Passenger Locator Form on arrival.

The second is failure to possess a coronavirus testing package upon arrival in Manchester.

McClarey was due to appear before South Cumbria Magistrates Court in Barrow on June 7 but failed to attend.

The case management hearing, at which a trial date will be fixed, will now take place at Tameside Magistrates Court in Greater Manchester on Tuesday, June 13 at 10am.

McClarey has been ordered by the court to attend on June 13, and live witnesses are expected to be called for the trial.
