The court heard the 39-year-old is accused of two counts of committing fraud between February 17 and April 11 this year by pretending to be the landlord of a property at Orchard Close, Barlborough, with the intention of causing loss to two men, or exposing them to a risk of loss.

Magistrates told Mr Hardy to attend Derby Crown Court on June 19 for a trial.

Mr Hardy was released on bail with a condition that he does not access the internet.
