A man has denied a charge of not keeping his dog under control after a postman was injured in Bury St Edmunds.

It is alleged Goddard’s Staffordshire bull terrier was dangerously out of control on November 4.
Goddard pleaded not guilty to the charge, which is being brought by Royal Mail.
Addressing Goddard, Judge David Pugh said: “I am listing your trial for April 6, 2021.
