Have your say

A MAN accused of carrying out two burglaries has been remanded in custody by the courts.

Robert Spenceley is alleged to have broken into two flats at The Tower in Portsmouth’s Gunwharf Quays.

The 21-year-old did not enter any pleas to the two charges of burglary when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

District Judge Anthony Calloway ruled that the allegations are so serious the case must be heard at the crown court.

Spenceley, of Edinburgh Road, Landport, Portsmouth, was remanded in custody by the judge.

He is due to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court in April.
