A man has appeared in court charged with claiming to be an osteopath when he was not registered as one.

Nigel Graham, 63, of Southbourne, is accused of describing himself as an osteopath on his Facebook page on two occasions in October last year.

He appeared at Highbury Magistrates’ Court today (August 11).

He denied using the title of osteopath while not registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).

Mr Graham gave his address as 2 Miller Gardens, Chilcombe Road, Southbourne, although court listings showed an address in Church Hill Road, Barnet.

His trial is now set to take place on October 10 at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.
