Have your say

A MAN has denied stealing tens of thousands of pounds from an elderly woman.

Graham Spicer, 37, of Shelford Road, Southsea, is alleged to have stolen the money from Frederica Gale, who is in her 90s, between February and June last year.

Spicer pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft at Portsmouth Crown Court.

He was released on bail to stand trial in June.
