Man remanded in custody

A MAN accused of sexually assaulting a 74-year-old woman at her Eastwood home while claiming to be a doctor, has been remanded in custody for a further two weeks.

Christopher Hayball (53) made a second appearance before Nottingham Crown Court on Friday.

He had been due to make an application for bail but that was postponed until the next hearing.

Hayball, of Mansfield Road, Heath, Chesterfield, is also accused of sexually touching an 89-year-old woman in similar circumstances in Sutton.

It is alleged the assaults took place in July and May this year.

Mrs Justice Macur remanded Hayball until December 9 when he is expected to enter his pleas.
