A teenage actor has denied raping a 14-year-old boy at the New Wimbledon Theatre in 2010.

The 17-year-old, from Sutton, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has appeared at Blackfriars Crown court, where he pleaded not guilty to rape, two counts of sexual assault and assault by beating.

He will now face trial, which will start on March 18 and is expected to last for two weeks.
