A MAN has denied committing 13 historical indecent assaults on a child.

Anthony Lane pleaded not guilty to the charges involving a girl under the age of 16 between 1986 and 1989 when appearing at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The 77-year-old, of Mayflower Road, Droitwich, was released on unconditional bail until August 8 when he will stand trial at Worcester Crown Court.

Some of the alleged offences are said to have taken place at Droitwich Lido.
