The trial of a 28-year-old man accused of being involved in an aggravated burglary in Claydon is due to take place in April.

Before Ipswich Crown Court today, via a prison video link, for a plea and trial preparation hearing was Barry Lawrence, of no fixed address.

He pleaded not guilty to an offence of aggravated burglary last year.

The details of the offence stated that, acting with others, he entered a property in Morgan Court, Claydon with intent to steal and had a weapon with him.

His three-day trial is expected to start during a two-week period commencing April 16.

There was no application for bail by his barrister Richard Kelly and Lawrence was remanded in custody.

Lawrence was arrested in Felixstowe on December 15 following an alleged incident which happened at around 3pm on Monday, October 23 at a home in Morgan Court, Claydon,
