Stephen Eustace, 65, has been charged with possessing a knife, a lock knife, in Badersfield, near the former RAF Coltishall site, on February 25 this year.

Eustace was set to appear at Norwich Magistrates Court on Friday (September 20) but did not attend.

The court heard that Eustace, of Skeyton Road, Scottow, has previously not attended due to ongoing medical problems.
