A man accused of the historical multiple rape of a boy aged eight to nine has made his first appearance at court.
Scott Murphy, 23, of Mains Lane, Poulton, is charged with three offences of raping the boy and three offences of sexually assaulting him.
The offences are alleged to have taken place between August 2008 and August 2010.
Murphy was bailed to appear at Preston Crown Court on March 16 by Blackpool magistrates.
He must not have any unsupervised contact with a child under 16, except for inadvertent contact, as a condition of his bail.
