Clubber denies pre-Christmas sexual assault outside Hippodrome nightclub
A clubber has denied sexually assaulting a woman outside the Hippodrome nightclub in the run-up to Christmas.
John Bate, 25, was accused of sexually touching the woman outside the St James Road Kingston nightclub on December 22.
Mr Bate, of Constitution Hill, Woking, denied the charge when he appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on December 23.
He will face trial at Kingston Crown Court next year but banned from visiting any nightclubs as part of his bail conditions.
