A man has denied breaching a court order banning him from begging for money in the street.
Neville Dickinson appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Monday morning.
The 69-year-old entered not guilty pleas to six charges of breaching a criminal behaviour order.
Dickinson, of Ayloffe Road, Colchester, is accused of breaching the order in the town centre on July 28, 29, 30 and 31, and on August 6 and 31, including on three occasions at a bus stop.
