A MAN has admitted a string of charges, including driving dangerously, following his first appearance at crown court.

Kane Salmon, of Kimberley Road in Southbourne, pleaded guilty to five counts that took place in Somerford Road, Christchurch, on April 16.

The 25-year-old admitted dangerous driving, using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without insurance, driving a car without a licence and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

He appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court yesterday morning after an earlier preliminary hearing at the town’s magistrates’ court.

In order to comply with his bail conditions, Salmon must not enter the Townsend Estate.

He must also not make contact with a group of individuals connected with an alleged incident in Jewell Road, during which a man sustained pellet injuries.

The group includes Ethan Stanley, of Hamilton Road, who was charged with the attempted murder of 48-year-old Mark Williams. The charge relates to an alleged incident at a property in Jewell Road just after midnight on April 16.

Stanley, aged 24, is also facing charges of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Mr Williams’ son John, between March 15 and 18.

Salmon will be sentenced at the court at 10am on June 6.
