The case of a man accused of assaulting a police officer had to be adjourned after he was “savaged” by a dog.
Jeffrey Sherratt, 31, has been charged with assault on an emergency worker, a police officer, on April 20 this year.
The case was listed at Norwich Crown Court yesterday for a plea and trial preparation hearing.
Danielle O’Donovan appeared for the prosecution and John Morgans appeared on behalf of the defendant.
But Sherratt, of Hawkins Close, Great Yarmouth, did not appear in court for the hearing.
