A man appeared in court today accused of child grooming in Milton Keynes.

Mark Rayner, 44, attended Luton Magistrates’ Court to plead not guilty to the charges.

Unemployed Mr Rayner, of Borton Avenue in Henlow, faces six counts involving sexual offences against teenage girls.

It was alleged Mr Rayner met with a 13-year-old in Milton Keynes for oral sex on two occasions between May 1 and August 31, 2014 .

A further meeting was alleged to have taken place on September 26, when Mr Rayner again allegedly met a 13-year-old in Milton Keynes pursuing sexual activity.

Mr Rayner also faces charges of inciting a 13-year-old to engage in prostitution or pornography between December 22, 2013 and October 31 2014.

Police reportedly uncovered a stash of pornographic images of underage girls which Mr Rayner allegedly had in his possession in October 2014.

The prosecution stated one of the alleged victims could be identified from the images.

Bail was granted with conditions and Mr Rayner will next appear at Luton Crown Court for his pre-trial hearing on March 15.
