A MAN has denied trying to steal a trolley of shopping from Tesco.

John Hill, 46, is accused of stealing £100 of goods from the store in Cosham High Street.

Hill, of Robin Gardens, Waterlooville, pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

Hill denies leaving the store with the goods and says he was standing by the exit trying to attract the attention of a friend outside.

He was released on bail to stand trial in June.
