A Grantham man has appeared in court charged with eight sexual offences, including two counts of raping a boy under 13.

David Sewell, 37, is alleged to have committed the offences against three children over a 10-year period.

Sewell, of Valley Road, appeared at Lincoln Crown Court via video link from Nottingham Prison today (Friday).

Wearing glasses and a red jumper, Sewell spoke only to confirm his name during the five-minute hearing.

He will be asked to plead to the charges when he appears at Lincoln Crown Court on November 4.

He faces charges of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child under 13, two counts of sexual assault of a boy by touching, two counts of causing a child under 13 to watch or look at images of sexual activity, two counts of raping a boy under 13 and one count of voyeurism

There was no bail application and Judge Sean Morris remanded Sewell into custody until the plea and case management hearing.

Lincolnshire Police is still appealing for information to help their investigation and has asked people to contact them.
