A Folkestone man will go on trial in June accused of killing father-of-two Tim Clayton.

Brian Sharp, 54, appeared at Canterbury Crown Court and pleaded not guilty to murdering Mr Clayton, 45, in November last year.

Sharp, of Manor Road, spoke only twice during the 10-minute hearing, to confirm his name and enter his plea.
