A pre-trial hearing at Oxford Crown Court has been held in the case of a pensioner charged with 17 counts of rape.

Terry Haynes, of Mathews Way, Abingdon, denies the charges and has also pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of indecent assault and two attempted rapes.

The 69-year-old is alleged to have committed the offences over a 10-year period.

Haynes is on conditional bail and will appear on March 24 for a trial.
