A man accused of a series of sex attacks on elderly women was remanded in custody today to appear in court again later this month.

Delroy Grant, 52, of Brockley, south east London, appeared at Greenwich Magistrates' Court today.

Magistrate Christopher Field ordered Grant to appear at Woolwich Crown Court next Thursday.

Grant was charged with five rapes, six indecent assaults and 11 burglaries when he appeared at the same court on Monday.

The attacks took place at addresses in Warlingham, Addiscombe, Bromley, West Dulwich, Orpington and Beckenham between October 1992 and May this year.

Prosecutors said further charges "were likely", but no more charges were brought today.

Grant, wearing a white shirt, spoke only to confirm his name when he appeared in the dock.
