A 35-year-old man has had assault and taking a vehicle without consent charges against him dropped.

A story on page 7 of yesterday’s Oxford Mail said Lee Rudman, of Blenheim Drive, Witney, was due to face charges at Oxford Crown Court.

The information was provided by the police but both charges against him had been withdrawn on Thursday, May 8.

He is due to appear before Oxford magistrates on May 30 charged with theft.
