An adult has denied grooming a 14-year-old girl who he arranged to meet at the Ramada Hotel in Grantham.

Max Terry of St Columb Road, Cornwall, is accused of meeting the girl on January 25 with the intention of engaging in sexual activity.

The case was sent to Lincoln Crown Court and will next be heard on January 20.

Terry, 19, was released on bail with the conditions he does not contact the alleged victim, does not have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 16 and does not enter Lincolnshire except for appointments with the court or a solicitor.
