A MAN has been accused of assaulting two boys aged 11 and 12 in a Hampshire town.

It follows an incident in which the boys are said to have been inappropriately touched at Gore Road, New Milton, last Sunday at around 4.30pm.

Martyn Jeffery Quinn, 65, of Fordingbridge, has been charged with two counts of assaulting a boy under 13 by touching.

Quinn appeared in court yesterday and was remanded in custody. He will appear at Southampton Crown Court on February 7.
