Through defence lawyer James Gurnick, the man – who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of the young complainants – entered not guilty pleas on all counts.

According to court documents, two of the three complainants were aged between 2 and 5 years old at the time of the alleged sexual offending, said to have occurred between 2012 and 2014.

Gurnick said his client, aged in his 40s, consented to be remanded in custody until his next appearance.

Community magistrate Kaye Davies entered the not guilty pleas and remanded the man in custody to reappear in October.
