A 61-year-old man who is accused of sexually abusing three females has been released on bail by a judge.

Christopher Hinton is said to have carried out the offences between March and August last year.

No charges were formally put and he did not enter any pleas during the brief hearing at Swindon Crown Court.

Hinton, of Ridgemead, Calne, was released on bail on condition he does not contact witnesses or have unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.
