The accused 'terrorised the Polish community' says partner of murder victim

The partner of a man stabbed to death outside their home has said that those accused of the murder 'terrorised the Polish community' in Carlisle.

Katarzyna Plominski was giving evidence at the trial of three people accused of murder and another two accused of perverting the course of justice.

Ms Plominski said she saw two men attacking her partner outside their home, but under cross examination admitted that she did not get a good look at their faces.

She also told the court that her partner used to smoke Cannabis, but said she knew nothing about alleged threats of violence made by Piotr Kulinski against the defendants.

All the defendants deny the charges. The trial continues.
