A teenager has denied threatening two people with a knife in Dereham.

Kallum Attride, 19, formerly of Market Street, Thetford, pleaded not guilty to two counts of threatening a person in South Green Gardens on August 19 this year.

Martin Ivory, prosecuting at Norwich Crown Court, said that a trial was expected to take about two days.

Andrew Oliver appeared for Attride, who was smartly dressed in a jacket and tie.

Judge Anthony Bate granted Attride conditional bail, which includes the condition not to enter Dereham.
