TWO Bradford men will stand trial accused of kidnapping, imprisoning and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

Ismail Ali, 25, of Wellesley Street, and Naheem Uddin, 26, of Ashbourne Way, will appear at Bradford Crown Court for their trial, which will start on August 15.

The pair, who were in court today for a trial preparation hearing, face a total of seven sexual offence allegations, as well as kidnap and false imprisonment charges.

Ali and Uddin are alleged to have taken the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to an Ibis hotel in Bradford.

Andrew Dallas, representing Uddin, told the court that the pair believed the girl was aged 16.

Judge Peter Benson told Ali and Uddin that they would remain in custody until their trial.
