A man accused of sending harassing and threatening letters to Barking MP Margaret Hodge will go before a judge.

Appearing via video link from Pentonville prison on Wednesday, 31-year-old Maxwell Maundy, sat quietly on Wednesday as District Judge Gary Lucie committed him for trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court on July 29.

Maundy, of no fixed address, stands accused of one count of harassment, two counts of sending written communication for the purpose of causing distress or anxiety and a final count of distributing material which was threatening or abusive.

He will remain in custody until the trial date.
