A man charged with possessing four knives in the vicinity of Norwich train station has been remanded in custody by a judge this morning.

Martin Walker, 48, was arrested at the station on Sunday after armed response units were alerted to an incident around Norwich Road, Rackheath.

Appearing for his first hearing at Norwich Magistrates Court this morning via video link from Wymondham Police Investigation Centre, Walker repeatedly tried to interrupt proceedings.

Wearing glasses, a chequered shirt and cardigan, Walker indicated he wanted to plead not guilty to four charges of possessing a bladed article, including a kitchen knife and three craft knives.

District Judge Paul Booty remanded Walker, of Marywell Street, Aberdeen, into custody and declined jurisdiction.
