Worle man in court over sexual relationship with 14-year-old girl

A WORLE man will appear before Bristol Crown Court next week accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

Robert Edwards, 46, was released on bail by magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse and ordered to stay away from the victim and not to be unaccompanied among girls under the age of 18.

He is accused of inappropriately touching the girl, knowing she was under-age, between July 2 and August 4 of this year.

Edwards, of Taunton Road, has yet to enter a plea, and will appear at crown court next week for a preliminary hearing.
