A former Ilkley Cub Scout leader, who has denied charges of indecently assaulting a boy under 14, will face trial in September.

Peter Francis, 59, appeared at Bradford Crown Court for a preliminary hearing yesterday.

Judge John Potter adjourned the case for a plea and case management hearing to June 10. A trial, expected to last four days, was fixed for September 15.

Balding, grey-haired Francis, who wears glasses and has a bushy moustache, was remanded in custody.
