A 36-year-old man from Worcester denies possession of cocaine with intent to supply.

Choudary Hussain, aged 36, of Lansdowne Road, Worcester, appeared at Worcester Crown Court yesterday where he pleaded not guilty to possession of cocaine, a class A drug, with intent to supply.

The drugs were found in the rear passenger area of a van. The alleged offence happened on April 1 last year.

The case has been placed in a warned list which means the trial could begin on or after November 4 this year.

The trial is scheduled to last between two and three days. Hussain was granted unconditional bail.
