He will face two counts of rape, two counts of meeting a child following sexual grooming, two counts of sexual activity with a child between 13 and 16 years and trafficking within the UK for the purposes of sexual exploitation when he appears at Armagh Magistrates' Court.

The charges are believed to be in connection with a number of incidents in the Newcastle and Banbridge areas between June 2012 and January 2013.

A PSNI spokesman said the charges could be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
