A city trader accused of gambling away £1.5bn in Britain's biggest banking fraud has appeared in court.

Kweku Adoboli, 31, from Clark Street in east London is accused of losing the money while working for Swiss bank UBS.

He has denied two counts of fraud and two counts of false accounting at an earlier hearing.

A provisional trial date has been set for September.
