A NORTH Pembrokeshire farmer, accused of failing to stop his tractor after an accident with a cyclist during the Tour of Pembrokeshire, has had all charges against him dismissed.

Haydn Williams, of Pontfaen, had previously appeared before Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Thursday, January 3, accused of failing to stop his CLAAS tractor after a road accident.

Mr Williams previously pleaded not guilty to the charge, as well as two others: failing to report the accident to police and driving the vehicle without due care and attention.

A previous court heard Phillip Withers, the 64-year-old cyclist involved in the accident, was riding his Cannandale Synapse bicycle along the narrow Wolfscastle to Tufton road on May 19 of last year at the tail end of a group of approximately 20 others.

The case had been listed for a multi-date trial, but today, April 25, all three charges were dismissed, and an order made for Mr Williams’ defence costs to be paid from central funds.
