A teacher is to stand trial over accusations that he abused six children while working at a primary school in Glasgow.

Gerald King is accused of using lewd and libidinous practices when he was a teacher at St Martha's Primary school.

The charges detail allegations from 1983 to 1989 and relate to four boys and two girls at the school.

The 65-year-old also faces a seventh charge of taking or permitting to be taken, indecent images of children.

Appearing at Glasgow Sherriff Court for a pre-trial hearing, the pensioner denied the charges against him.

The trial is due to begin in August.
