A WOODMANSEY man has been remanded in custody on firearms and drugs charges. Police told us 29-year-old Joshua Simmons was arrested at a property in Woodmansey earlier this week and has been charged with three counts of possessing a firearm without a certificate, possession with intent to supply cocaine and handling stolen goods. 

On entering the property, a number of firearms and a quantity of Class A drugs were recovered, police told us. Simmons, who remains in custody, will appear at Hull Crown Court next month.
