In A Little Local Knowledge, the final episode of the second season of Six Days of Justice, it is a case of assault and cross-summons for the same offence.
Landowner Edward Drake is charged with wilfully causing damage to a caravan on his land, owned by Mr and Mrs Kibble, and at the same time also assaulting Mrs Kibble by striking her. Drake has been renting out the land to Mr and Mrs Kibble for some time. The couple keep geese as well as the caravan on the land and it appears that Drake has grown tired of the mess the couple are allegedly making.
Mrs Kibble is accused of assaulting Drake when she spotted him setting fire to the caravan.
It’s very clear that both the Kibbles and Drake are as bad as each other and seem to have gone out of their way to antagonise each other. Neither of them gets the verdict they were hoping for.
Warren Clarke is the most well known face here as a friend of Drakes who is called to give evidence against the Kibble’s but doesn’t come out of it smelling of roses.
