The other charges date between 2004 and 2018, and are said to have happened in Bourne and Peterborough.

Matt, wearing a black jacket and black trousers, did not enter a plea to any of the charges during the short hearing.

Deputy District Judge Paul Booty, said the case was too serious to be heard at the magistrates court, and granted Matt bail, to appear at Peterborough Crown Court on November 30.
