A man is to go on trial later this year in connection with an arson attack in Suffolk that left a family homeless.

Fire crews were called to the blaze near the market place in Halesworth at about 18:15 BST on 11 June.

The fire was discovered at a newsagent's on Chediston Street and spread to two other buildings, causing a roof to collapse.

Stephen Wilson, 31, of Langley in Norfolk, denied arson and assault at Ipswich Crown Court.

He will go on trial on 4 December.
