A scout leader from Grantham has been charged with eight offences including two charges involving sexual intercourse with a boy under the age of 13.

David Sewell of Valley Road, Grantham, was accused at Grantham Magistrates’ Court on Friday of committing the eight sexual offences involving children over a ten year period.

Sewell, 37, has yet to enter a plea to any of the charges against him.

The case was sent to the crown court, due to the seriousness of the charges.

He will next appear at Lincoln Crown Court on August 9.

Lincolnshire Police has appealed for anyone who believes they may have further information with regard to this case to get in touch.

A police spokesman said: “Should anyone have any information which they feel could assist this investigation or have any concerns in relation to this, they should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting Incident 154 of July 26 and provide their name, address and telephone numbers and the investigating officers will be in touch as soon as possible.”
