A man accused of assaulting a police officer who had his case adjourned after he was “savaged” by a dog has denied the offence.
Jeffrey Sherratt, 31, has been charged with assault on an emergency worker on April 20 this year.
The case had been listed at Norwich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing last month but was adjourned after it emerged Sherratt had been “savaged by a dog”.
But Sherratt, of Victoria Road, Great Yarmouth, appeared in court on Wednesday when he denied the offence.
A trial has been put in the warned list for November 16.
