A Great Blakenham man has denied impersonating a police officer and will face a trial next year.

David Brown, 61, appeared before magistrates in Ipswich on Friday and pleaded not guilty to impersonating a police constable and using a motor vehicle without insurance.

Brown, of Masons Drive, Great Blakenham, is accused of impersonating a member of the police force on January 5 this year in Ipswich.

The other charge relates to a Ford Focus being allegedly used with no insurance on the A14 Ipswich bypass also on January 5.

Brown spoke only to confirm his personal details and enter his not guilty pleas at the short preliminary hearing.
