A MAN has denied stealing a camera worth £100 from a parked car.

Daniel James Gray (35), of Derwent Road, Hexham, pleaded not guilty at Newcastle Magistrates' Court last Thursday to stealing the camera from a car in the town's Eastgate on October 15. He did admit to stealing two pairs of sunglasses from a different vehicle on the same day.

He will return to Newcastle Magistrates' Court on January 31.
