Quinten Hann denies sexual assault charges against him
Snooker star Quinten Hann will "vigorously" deny sexual assault charges against him, his lawyer said.

Australian-born Mr Hann, 27, of Ealing, west London, appeared before magistrates in Ealing on Wednesday.

He is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two charges of actual bodily harm.

He is accused of committing the alleged sex offences in Uxbridge Road, Ealing, on 29 August. The case has been adjourned until 20 October.

Defence solicitor Dominic D'Souza said: "Mr Hann denies the allegations made by the two alleged victims in the case and will be contesting them vigorously at the trial."

Mr Hann was remanded on conditional bail.
