A trial date has been set for a retired detective who is accused of raping a woman during his time as a policeman.

Colin Andrews, 57, a former detective chief superintendent with Humberside Police, is accused of raping the woman in December 2003.

Mr Andrews, of Brough, East Yorkshire, is also charged with stalking, common assault and harassment.

He will next appear at Manchester Crown Court on 16 June. A provisional trial date has been set for 13 October.

Mr Andrews was responsible for a number of high-profile investigations for Humberside Police, including the inquiry into the death of Army cadet Stephen Hilder in a sky-diving incident in 2003.

After his retirement, he continued working for the force in a civilian role.
