A man admitted being part of a gang who carried out an attempted robbery in Beccles.

Jai Souter, 23, of Rigbourne Hill, Beccles, admitted attempted robbery at an address in Ellough Road, Beccles on April 1, this year.

His barrister Joe Bird told Norwich Crown Court that his plea was on a basis that he had no weapon and had been involved in the attempted robbery with two other people.

The case had been due to be heard as a trial but Charles Kellett, prosecuting said that the plea was acceptable and it had spared the victims giving evidence in court.

Souter's case was adjourned for reports to a date to be fixed but Judge Katharine Moore said she wanted an assessment of the danger he posed.
