Three men are to make their first court appearance this morning after a man was allegedly tattooed with a vile word on the top of his head while he slept.

Labourer Edward Murray, 34, awoke after a drinking session in September 2020 with the word 'nonce' crudely tattooed onto his head. He also had a set of male genitals tattooed underneath the word, and another man's name tattooed on his arm.

The incident is alleged to have happened in Nassington between September 1 and 4, 2020.
