court
A man has denied charges of attacking and raping a woman when he appeared at a County Tyrone Court.

Dennis Hugh McDermott, 22, from Newtown Place, Strabane, was charged with rape and grievous bodily harm after an incident near the Derry Road on Monday.

His solicitor told Omagh court that while the young woman claimed she had been raped in an alleyway, the accused said she consented to sex in his home.

Mr McDermott was remanded in custody until 23 November.
