A MAN accused of two thefts had his case adjourned because he was feeling unwell.

David Hughes, of Clare Hill, Huddersfield, was due before magistrates yesterday.

He is charged with stealing 11 tops and shirts worth £343 from House of Fraser in the Kingsgate Centre on October 16.

Hughes is also alleged to have stolen two cordless drills, valued at £160, from B&Q at Leeds Road Retail Park.

His solicitor Jonathan Slawinski asked magistrates to adjourn the case as Hughes, 35, was unwell and had gone to see his doctor.

Magistrates agreed that Hughes’ case can be heard this morning.
