A MAN is to stand trial later this year charged with raping a young girl.

Morris Petch is accused of attacking the child - when she was aged 10 - at an address in Edinburgh between July 1997 and February 1998.

Petch also faces separate allegations of attempting to rape and using lewd and libidinous practices against the same girl.

The 57 year-old is further accused of sexually abusing a young boy.

Petch appeared for a preliminary hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.

Judge Lord Turnbull set a trial due to take place in November in Edinburgh.
