A WOMAN is to face trial accused to trying to smuggle a mobile phone into Chelmsford prison.

Sonia Henry denied the charge when she made a brief appearance at the city's crown court on Monday.

The 47-year-old from Castleton Road, London E17 will face trial in April next year. She was granted bail until then.

She is accused of attempting to get a mobile phone into the Springfield Road jail on August 24 this year.
