Couple deny child neglect charge

A man and a woman from Dumfries and Galloway have denied neglecting three young boys in their care.

The couple, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pled not guilty to a charge of exposing the children to poor hygiene in the family home.

They denied failing to meet the health requirements of the three boys, whose ages range from 10 to 13, in November last year.

A trial date has been set for Dumfries Sheriff Court in July.
