Man to stand trial accused of raping toddler

A 30-year-old man is to stand trial accused of raping a toddler at a flat in Renfrewshire.

Hugh Sim is charged with raping the girl in Renfrew, between September 2012 and August 2015, when she would have been aged between two and almost five.

He faces other allegations relating to the child, including sexual assault, and is also accused of indecent images charges between 2012 and 2015.

Mr Sim denies the charges. His trial was set to begin next April.

The 30-year-old's bail was continued following the hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.
