A young Wigan man will only go on trial in almost two years' time after denying three counts of sexual activity with a 15-year-old schoolgirl when he was 17 himself.

The now-22-year-old appeared before a Bolton Crown Court judge to deny the charges and was bailed until his trial takes place on March 16 2026.
