A MAN has appeared before a crown court judge accused of raping two children.

Jordan Lee Dowbekin, of Melrose Avenue, Leigh, is charged with two counts of the sex assault against a boy and a girl both under the age of 13.

The 25-year-old was released on bail conditional that he does not contact the complainants and is due to reappear at Liverpool Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on December 22. A date for Dowbekin’s trial was set for March 14 next year.
