A PENSIONER from Edinburgh has appeared in court accused of sexual activity with a child in Belfast.

Kevin Dromgoole has been charged with the indecent touching of a person under the age of 16.

The 72-year-old suspect, of Milton Street, Edinburgh, is alleged to have committed the offence in Belfast on Tuesday.

He was granted bail yesterday at Belfast magistrates’ court under several conditions, including a ban on going within 100m of any schools or parks.

The accused was told to surrender his passport and instructed to report to Lothian and Borders Police three times a week.

Dromgoole will appear again before the court in four weeks.
