Assault trial

A man from Clare is to stand trial after denying an assault charge.

Michael Williams, of Well Lane, appeared today at Ipswich Crown on Friday when he pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing actual bodily harm to another man on April 17.

Judge David Goodin told Williams that his trial, which is due to take place in November, is expected to last for up to five days.

Until his next court appearance, Williams will continue to be granted bail.
