A 64-year-old man who denies charges of attempted voyeurism and attempting to take an indecent photo of a child is due to contest the case in mid-November.

Christopher Hodgen of Salisbury Court in Belfast is accused in relation to July 27 this year.

The particulars of the attempted voyeurism charge are that the defendant ‘attempted, for the purposes of sexual gratification, to record another person doing a private act knowing that the other person would not consent to being recorded’.

The second charge is that the defendant ‘attempted to take an indecent photograph or pseudo-photograph of a child’.

Full details have yet to be outlined in court but it is believed the charges relate to an allegation which were made regarding Portstewart.

The defendant was excused from attending the latest mention of his case at Coleraine Magistrates Court.
