A 48-year-old man has denied breaking into a cottage in a seaside Suffolk village.

Antony Doy appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

Doy, of Arnhem Road, Leiston, pleaded not guilty to burgling a property in Thorpeness, near Aldeburgh, earlier this year.

He is accused of entering a cottage as a trespasser with intent to steal.

The burglary is alleged to have happened at some point between February 8 and 21.
