A man has appeared in court charged with four counts of rape.

Steven Sey, of Hydean Way in Stevenage, appeared before Cambridge Crown Court on Monday charged with four counts of raping a woman between January 2007 and October 2013, and one count of forcing a woman to engage in sexual activity.

The 36-year-old is also charged with wilfully assaulting, ill-treating, neglecting, abandoning or exposing a child in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health in October 2013.
