Some history on Aston Road and Aston Road North in Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on Aston Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Aston Road from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Aston Road. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place. There is also a general page for Aston.
"At the Birmingham Police Court, today, Hugh Larkin, who had been previously convicted 35 times, was charged with assaulting the police.
Last night Police Constable Heely, [D21] came across the prisoner in Aston Road. He was drunk and disorderly. The officer took him into custody. Prisoner became
very violent, and assaulted his captor, kicking and biting him. Police Constable Croft, [D34] was also injured. The further help Police Constable Gregg was
secured before prisoner could be taken to the station. Sentence of two months for each assault was passed."
