A 22-year-old man who is accused of raping a woman is to face trial.

Matthew Thorpe pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court on Friday.

It is alleged he committed the offence between Friday, May 3, and Monday, May 6, last year.

Judge Euan Ambrose adjourned the case to Wednesday, June 11, and released Thorpe, of Islington, Trowbridge, on bail until then.
