He appeared wearing a green jacket over a grey chequered suit.

Judge Nirmal Shant KC agreed to the defence’s motion to move the trial to another venue outside of the county.

She indicated it would likely be a significant distance away, saying “It’s more likely to be West Midlands than East Midlands.”

Cllr Zadrozny, who represents Ashfield Independents, will next appear in court on Wednesday, November 15.

Proceedings have been adjourned until that date to allow time for an alternative venue to be found so a date can then be set for the trial.

Cllr Zadrozny was again released on unconditional bail.

The politician represents the Larwood ward on Ashfield District Council and the Ashfields division at Nottinghamshire County Council.
