Wyverstone Parish Council chairman James Arnold who is accused of possessing prohibited weapons following a police search at his property in March is due to enter pleas to the charges in July.

The charges against 49-year-old, of Potash Road, Wyverstone, near Stowmarket relate to an Uzi machine gun, AK47 assault rifle, a bolt action shotgun and a self-loading rifled gun.
