A man accused of causing grievous bodily harm with intent will face a trial later this year.

Shane Borrett, 32, of Cambridge Road, Lowestoft, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday and pleaded not guilty to the GBH offence.

The charge follows an incident in Lowestoft on January 11 this year.

Borrett, who spoke only to confirm his personal details and enter his plea during the short hearing, will now face a trial, which has been placed on the crown court warned list for May 26.

The court heard that the trial is expected to last three to four days.
