A man will stand trial at Ipswich Crown Court later this year after denying three offences of attempted burglary at houses in Bury St Edmunds earlier this year.

Neil Charles, of Beaumont Close, Bury St Edmunds, appeared today (Tuesday, May 2) at a plea and trial preparation hearing at Ipswich Crown Court.

Charles, 43, appeared for the hearing via a prison video link.

He pleaded not guilty to two offences of attempted burglary at a house in Horsecroft Road, Bury St Edmunds.

The offences are alleged to have taken place on March 24 and March 31.

He also denied an attempted burglary at a house in Fountains Road, also in the town, which allegedly took place on March 2.

The case was adjourned for a trial which will take place during a two week warned list commencing August 7.

Charles was remanded in custody until his next appearance before the court.
