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.

Mr Hardy had been due to stand trial at Derby Crown Court this week.

However, Derby Crown Court has now confirmed that a pre-trial review for Mr Hardy will take place on July 12.
