Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward has appeared in court charged with racially aggravated harassment and possession of cocaine

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward has appeared in court charged with racially aggravated harassment and possession of cocaine.

Ward, 47, is accused of committing the offences at Euston Railway Station in London on October 29 last year.

But the mother-of-four, who lives in a £15 million Cheshire mansion with her ex-premiership football star husband Ashley Ward, was told she won't face trial until March 2022.

Ward, of Great Warford, is accused of racially aggravated intentional harassment towards two people, Jake Jacobs and Sam Jacobs, at the London train station.

She was also charged with possession of a class A drug, namely cocaine.

Each charge carries the potential of six months behind bars or an unlimited fine.

She first appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on September 10 this year but was later called again on September 28 for a plea hearing.

She denies all the charges.

The charges read: 'On 29/10/2019 at Euston Railway Station, Eversholt Street, Camden, London with intent to cause Jake Jacobs harassment, alarm or distress used threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour thereby causing that or another person harassment, alarm or distress and the offence was racially aggravated.'

She faces an identical charge which names Sam Jacobs.

The charges continue: 'On 29/10/2019 at Euston Railway Station Eversholt Street, Camden, London had in your possession a quantity of cocaine a controlled drug of class A in contravention of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.'

Her case was called before Inner London Crown Court today for a pre trial hearing and a court official said she is now set to face trial in March 2022.
