A man accused of stabbing his 70-year-old neighbour to death in the street on Boxing Day has been too ill to appear in court.

Jeffrey Burton, 60, was due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court earlier charged with murdering Harry Tindall.

A post-mortem examination has found Mr Tindall died from a stab wound to the chest. He was found collapsed in Pearl Close, Rainworth, where both men lived.

Mr Burton is now due to appear in court on 11 January.

He appeared at Mansfield Magistrates' Court on 28 December where he was remanded into custody.

A 54-year-old woman arrested in connection with the death remains on police bail pending further inquiries.
