The trial of a woman accused of the murder of a 60-year-old in Great Yarmouth will take place next month.

Linda Rainey died on August 7 2019, two days after she fell down a flight of stairs at an address on South Market Road in Great Yarmouth.

Rosalind Gray, 55, of Marlborough Square, Yarmouth, has been charged with murder and conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

Gray was not in court for a pre-trial review hearing at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday but her barrister Gregory Bull said it was a "firm not guilty plea" from his cliënt and therefore there would be a trial.

Adrian Lawrence, 53, of South Market Road, Yarmouth, has already pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiring to pervert the course of justice in relation to the death.
