A Reading man has denied operating a county lines drug network in Basingstoke.

Tyrone Potter, of Chiltern Crescent in Earley, Reading, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs across the town.

It is claimed by the prosecution that the 24-year-old was involved in the dealing of heroin and crack cocaine for two years.

Appearing at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday morning, Potter entered not guilty pleas.

He was remanded into custody, and the case has been listed for a management hearing on January 14, at the same court.

No date has been set for his trial.
