An MP accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy 14 years ago will stand trial next month.

Imran Ahmad Khan, 48, allegedly groped the 15-year-old in January 2008 at a house in Staffordshire.

Mr Khan, who was elected as Conservative MP for Wakefield, West Yorkshire, in 2019, appeared at the Old Bailey via video link.

Ms Justice McGowan had previously fixed his 10-day trial for 21 March at Southwark Crown Court but has now delayed its start by a week.

The judge said: “The fixture of the 21st is broken and we have now set the 28th.”
