An 86-year-old Wigan man will face a crown court judge after denying historical sex offences.

John Sarsfield, of Talman Grove in Ashton, will appear at Bolton Crown Court on July 4.

Bob Toppin, defending, said his client will plead not guilty to six charges.

The allegations involve indecent assaults on girls under 14 between 1983 and 1995.
