A headteacher has appeared in court charged with two indecent assaults on a former pupil aged under 16.

David Akers, 60, from Dorset, is accused of attacking the girl from Budmouth School in Weymouth, now known as Budmouth College, where he works.

Dorset Police said the allegations date back to 1995.

Mr Akers, from Weymouth, was released on conditional bail and is due to appear before Dorchester Crown Court on 12 August.

In a statement, Budmouth College said Mr Akers had not been at work since 14 December and an acting principal had taken over.
