The mum of Britain's Got Talent star George Sampson has denied dumping 16 bags of her son's fan mail.

Lesley Sampson is accused of fly-tipping, which is illegally getting rid of rubbish, by dumping the bags of letters outside her home in Warrington.

She denied the charge at Warrington Magistrates' Court on Wednesday and is due to appear again on 24 August.

George Sampson won Britain's Got Talent in 2008 and has just signed to perform with Diversity, this year's winner.
