Man in court over 1992 rape

A man has appeared before magistrates charged with raping a woman nearly 20 years ago.

Daniel Borgers, 41, appeared at Luton Magistrates' Court charged with rape under the 1956 Sexual Offences Act.

Borgers is suspected of raping a woman in Stotfold in October 1992.

Borgers, who used to live in Stotfold, was arrested by North Yorkshire Police on behalf of the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Major Crime Unit (BHCMCU) in Scarborough on Sunday.

The case has been worked on for a number of years by the unit's cold case team.

Borgers, of Napier Crescent, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, was remanded to appear at Luton Crown Court on August 28.
