A 57 year-old man has appeared before Truro magistrates this morning charged with 14 sexual offences.

Gary William McStein, of Boswin, near Wendron, offered no plea to the allegations, which relate to a girl under the age of 14.

All 14 charges are for indecent assault between November 3, 1988, and April 1, 1992.

He was released on unconditional bail to appear at Truro Crown Court on March 27.
