A man has pleaded not guilty to the attempted rape of a girl 30 years ago.

Philip Spriggs, 52, formerly of Oxford, was charged following a reinvestigation by the Thames Valley Police major crime review team.

He is accused of an attack on a teenager near Pullens Lane, Oxford, in January 1986.

Mr Spriggs appeared at Oxford Crown Court earlier and pleaded not guilty. He is next due to appear in court on 24 February with a trial set for 2 May.
