A man accused of sexually attacking and intimidating a 15-year-old girl has made his first appearance in court.

Jake Speakman, 22, of Kincraig Road, Bispham, is charged with sexually assaulting the teenager and engaging in sexual activity with her in Blackpool between last month and October 24, the court was told.

He is also accused of intimidating the teenager by saying he would put a knife to her neck if she spoke to police.

Speakman was remanded in custody to appear at Preston Crown Court next month by Blackpool magistrates.
