A man has made his first court appearance charged with the rape of two teenage Blackpool girls.
Paul Musto, 60, was sent to Preston Crown Court for trial by Blackpool Magistrates.
Musto is alleged to have committed seven rapes, two indecent assaults and an assault causing actual bodily harm.
The offences are said to have taken place in Blackpool between 2000 and 2004.
Musto, of Crowle, near Scunthorpe, was bailed to appear at the higher court on October 31.
A condition of his bail is that he must have no unsupervised contact with children under the age of 16.
