A former Crundale man is to stand trial accused of raping a child under the age of 13.

Eric Tenain, aged 50, once of The Flat, Newbridge Farm, but now officially of no fixed address, attended a plea and trial preparation hearing before Judge Keith Thomas at Swansea crown court.

He denied the allegation of rape between 2010 and 2012.

Tenain will stand trial on November 13 and will be held in custody until then.
