A 24-year-old man arrested in connection with the disappearance of university student Libby Squire has denied 12 unrelated offences.

Pawel Relowicz appeared at Hull Crown Court charged with five counts of burglary, three counts of voyeurism, three counts of outraging public decency and one of receiving stolen goods.

Relowicz, of Raglan Street, Hull, was arrested on suspicion of abduction after Miss Squire, from High Wycombe, went missing last month and he remains under investigation.

He appeared in the dock of court room one wearing a grey tracksuit.

Speaking through a Polish interpreter, he replied "not guilty" as the court clerk read out each charge against him.

Relowicz is accused of three counts of outraging public decency in December and January, which each allege that he masturbated in a public place in Hull.

One of the charges alleges that he masturbated on Wellesley Avenue, where Miss Squire's student house is located, on January 20 this year.

He is also accused of three counts of voyeurism in the city, between July 2017 and December 2018, which allege that he observed three people "doing a private act" for the purpose of sexual gratification.

The defendant is also accused of stealing items including sex toys, underwear, condoms, photographs, electronic equipment and cash at five burglaries in Hull, between 2017 and 2019, and receiving a stolen mobile phone in November last year.

No application for bail was made and the case was adjourned until the next hearing in June.

Relowicz is due to go on trial at Sheffield Crown Court on July 22.

Judge Paul Watson QC, the Recorder of Hull, told him: "Your trial in relation to these matters will take place on 22 July.

"There will be a further hearing of this case in June."

He continued: "There is no application for bail, at least at this stage, and so you will be remanded in custody."

Miss Squire, 21, was reported missing on February 1 and, despite intensive searches since that time, she has not been found.

Relowicz was questioned last month in connection with her disappearance and was later charged with the unrelated offences.
