Man denies GBH charge

A Great Cornard man has appeared in court to deny three offences of assault.

Wayne Hudgell, 38, of Bures Road, is alleged to have committed the offences on July 15.

He is charged with two offences of assault by beating and one of assault causing grievous bodily harm.

Hudgell appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday when he was told by Judge Rupert Overbury that his trial, expected to last for four days, would take place in the week commencing March 5.

Until then, Hudgell will continue to be granted bail on condition that he does not contact two named individuals and does not enter Bures Road, Great Cornard, unless accompanied by a police officer.
