TWO leaders of the breakaway miners’ union UDM have appeared in court accused of stealing nearly £150,000 from a miner’s charity.

Michael Leslie Stevens, aged 59, of Rufford Park, Newark, and Neil Greatrex, also 59, from Stanley, near Teversal, Nottinghamshire, are accused of four counts of theft from the Nottinghamshire Miners Home charity.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Two men have appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court charged with four offences of theft, totalling £148,628.” The men pleaded not guilty and will reappear at court in May.
