Drugs trial

Three men accused of being involved in the production of cannabis are to stand trial next year.

Gary Woodward, 44, of Priory Road, Sudbury, Simon Hicks, 41, of Sackers Green, Newton, and Barry Estabrook, 42, of Hartest Way, Great Cornard, have pleaded not guilty to production of the drug.

It is alleged cannabis was being cultivated at a factory unit in Addison Road, Sudbury, earlier this year.

On Friday, Judge David Goodin said the trial of the three men would commence on April 16.
