A Bradford man has denied stealing Christmas presents and war medals in burglaries at Skipton.

Hazrat Shah, 26, of Chatham Street, Undercliffe, appeared at Bradford Crown Court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to three charges of burglary. He is alleged to have stolen jewellery and other items from a house in Skipton last December.

He is also alleged to have stolen items in Grassington Road, on Christmas Eve last year. Shah also denied a third alleged house burglary, in Hebden Bridge. He was further remanded in custody to his trial on June 23.
