Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Monday March 11 was 24-year-old James Sinclair, of Green Lane, Honington, who pleaded not guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on Thomas Cleary and assaulting Patrick Cleary by beating on November 24 last year.

Mr Cleary senior was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and had surgery to treat his injuries.
His son also suffered minor injuries.
Sinclair’s trial is expected to take place during a two week warned list commencing August 19.
The trial is expected to last four days.
