A CAR dealer accused of charging a customer hundreds of pounds for work he allegedly never completed, has changed his plea to not guilty and will now stand trial at Crown Court.
Kerry Nurse, of Pound Road, Chatteris, had pleaded guilty to two counts of supplying goods with false descriptions when he appeared before Huntingdon magistrates in March.
However, Nurse was back in court in June when his barrister made a successful bid to "vacate the plea"
