A pensioner accused of raping a mother-of-two in her own home 26 years ago has made his first appearance at court.

John Dolan, 66, of Hodder Avenue, Fleetwood, is charged with raping the woman between November 1 and December 31 at Fleetwood.

He is also accused of three offences of indecently assaulting the woman.

Alan Godwin, defending, said his client would not indicate pleas to the offences at this stage.

Dolan was bailed to appear at Preston Crown Court on January 30 by Blackpool magistrates.

He must live at his given address as a condition of his bail.
