A former police chairman has denied getting another man to take the blame for a traffic offence.

Dave McLuckie, who worked for Cleveland Police Authority, is accused of persuading Maurice Ward to take the blame for an offence in 2005.

Appearing before Newcastle magistrates, the 51-year-old, of Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, denied perverting the course of justice.

He was bailed and is due to stand trial at Newcastle Crown Court on 10 June.
