A St Albans man whose home was at the centre of a police raid two years ago has pleaded not guilty to 11 firearms offences.

Alan Tissington, 49, of Windmill Avenue, denied the charges at St Albans Crown Court last Wednesday (6).

He was arrested on September 17, 2014, following the execution of a warrant at his home address where a number of First and Second World War artefacts and munitions were seized.

Herts Police charged Mr Tissington with the offences in July 2015, following advice from the Thames and Chiltern Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

The trial is due to begin at St Albans Crown Court on October 24, 2016.
