Man charged with 1990 rape


A Nottinghamshire man will appear in court on Friday charged with a rape in Nottingham almost 26 years ago.

Mark Carnelley, aged 51, of Ambleside, Gamston, is charged with a single count of rape of a 25-year-old woman in Bluecoat Close, Nottingham, at around 11.30pm on 14 September 1990.

Following a fresh examination of evidence in the case in 2015, Carnelley was arrested in November and charged last month.

He will appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday 29 April.
