A CARDIGAN man is to stand trial after denying charges of assault and theft.

Brian Morgan, of Bro Teifi, Cardigan, appeared before magistrates at Aberystwyth Justice Centre to plead not guilty to assaulting a woman in the town on July 30. He also denied stealing £200 from the same woman on that date.

The 61-year-old was remanded on conditional bail and will be back before the court on October 11 for trial.
