The case was adjourned, to a date later this month, to allow a mental health assessment to be carried out.

A further case against Cairns, due to be heard later today, alleging he assaulted a Metro ticket inspector at South Shields, on December 10, was also adjourned.

Cairns was not present during the hearing and denies both charges.
