A man has appeared in court on a race-hate charge after a woman complained about a golliwog doll in his window.
Jason Wakefield-Jones, of Bastion Road, Prestatyn, is accused of intending to cause harassment, alarm or distress and that the offence was racially aggravated.
Mr Wakefield-Jones appeared at Llandudno Magistrates' Court.
The 50-year-old denied the sole charge against him and was bailed until a trial before magistrates next month.
The court heard the alleged incident took place on 4 January.
Defending solicitor Roger Thomas said the item was a toy in a first-floor window and only one person had complained.
The golliwog is a fictional character created by Florence Kate Upton that appeared in children's books in the late 19th Century, usually depicted as a type of rag doll.
It has become controversial for its perceived racist connotations.
