Before Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday ( March 31) for a plea and trial preparation hearing was 40-year-old Terri Spilling from Ipswich.

She pleaded not guilty to two offences of fraud committed between September 30 2018 and April 1 2019.

Spilling’s trial, which is expected to last four days, will get underway on April 11 next year.

Recorder Richard Atchley allowed Spilling’s bail to continue and ordered that a further trial preparation hearing should take place on April 28 this year.
