A 22-year-old man is set to stand trial for a string of charges including wounding and possession of an offensive weapon at a Sheffield pub, after he pleaded not guilty to the offences at court today.

Jamie Smith, of no fixed abode, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court this afternoon charged with one count of robbery, two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH) one count of an attempted wounding with intent to cause GBH and one count of possessing an offensive weapon, namely a knife.
