A LLANDYSUL man is one of six defendants accused of affray following a violent incident near Aberystwyth railway station.

Jamie Langridge, 36, of Lincoln Street, has denied two charges of affray in the town dating back to May 13 last year.

Joseph Govier, 29, of Beechley Drive in Pentrebane, Cardiff, and Robert Thomas, 41, whose given address was HMP Parc Prison, have both also pleaded not guilty to a single charge of affray each from that same date.

Appearing at Swansea Crown Court on Wednesday, June 28, Langridge’s defence counsel said: “His position remains the same, he’s not guilty.”

Langridge, Govier and Thomas will face a trial on September 4.

Jo Lewis, 39, of Pwllhobi Terrace in Llanbadarn Fawr, and Lee Lawton, 46, of Corporation Street in Aberystwyth, have admitted a charge each of affray, while Lloyd Govier, 26, of Coed-y-Gores in Llanedeyrn, Cardiff, pleaded guilty to two offences of affray.

Prosecutor James Hartson described the incident outside Aberystwyth railway station as “involving various pockets of violence rather than an orchestrated disorder”.

An application was made on behalf of Lloyd Govier – who is currently in prison – to be sentenced separately before the trial of his three co-defendants so he can find out whether he would remain in prison long enough to complete a catering course.

Lloyd Govier will be sentenced next week, Judge Geraint Walters confirmed. Lewis will also appear before the court again on that date after missing this latest hearing through illness.

David Singh asked for his client, Lawton, to be sentenced after the trial.

Dyfed-Powys Police previously confirmed they were called to reports of disorder on the junction of Alexandra Road and Terrace Road in Aberystwyth on the evening of May 13, 2022.
