A Royal Navy officer has denied the sexual assault of a man at a court martial hearing.

Lieutenant Commander Greig Murray entered his not guilty plea at the hearing held at the court martial centre at Portsmouth Naval Base over the offence which is alleged to have happened in January.

The 38-year-old, based at Flag Officer Sea Training South in Plymouth, will stand trial on February 8 next year.
