A 23-year-old man has been charged with a series of sex assaults in Derby.

He is facing seven charges, including one of rape, relating to two attacks in Spondon and one in Darley Abbey between September 2014 and December 2015.

Ilija High, from Chaddesden, appeared before Southern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court and was remanded in custody.

The charges follow a high-profile police appeal for information which saw thousands of leaflets handed out over the past few days.
