A former East Sussex GP has appeared in court to plead not guilty to carrying out a series of indecent assaults on young girls over a period of eight years.

Dr Antony Collis, 58, of Station Road, Stonegate, which is near Wadhurst, also denied nine counts of making indecent images of children between April 2004 and October 2008.

Dr Collis, who previously practised at the Belmont Surgery in Wadhurst, is accused of indecently assaulted seven girls who were under the age of 14 between June 1995 and August 2003.

Bespectacled Dr Collis, who stood in the dock at Lewes Crown Court dressed in a maroon tie and grey suit, denies all 22 charges.

Judge Richard Brown granted him bail to appear at the same court for trial on 11 October.
