A pub landlord has appeared in court charged with two counts of assaulting a child.

Richard Owen, who runs the Maid's Head in King's Lynn, is alleged to have committed the offences in January 2017 and February 2018.

Owen, 44, of Tuesday Market Place, entered a not guilty plea to both charges during a brief hearing before King's Lynn magistrates today.

The case was adjourned to November 7 at Norwich Crown Court. Owen was granted unconditional bail. Reporting restrictions were not lifted.
