A man who is accused of blackmailing a Melksham businessman has been released on bail by a judge.

Christopher Milner, 20, is said to have demanded money with menaces between July 2010 and January this year.

No charges were put to Milner, of Southsea, Portsmouth, and he did not enter any pleas at Swindon Crown Court on Friday.

Judge Tim Mousley QC adjourned the case to Friday, August 22, and released Milner on conditional bail until then.
