A man has denied drink-driving on a Suffolk country road and will face a trial before magistrates later this year.

Alex Riley, 34, of Church Lane, Iken, near Aldeburgh, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Friday to face two charges relating to an alleged drink-driving incident.

Riley is charged with driving a motor vehicle when his alcohol level was above the limit and driving while unfit through drink.

Riley pleaded not guilty to both charges which related to an alleged incident on March 31 this year on Snape Road at Sternfield involving a Fiat Sedici.

Riley will now face a trial at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich on Tuesday, October 27.
