A Canterbury nurse arrested after a tip-off from officers involved in the cannibal plot trial of a US policeman is due in court today accused of administering poison to a woman two years ago.

Dale Bolinger faces 11 allegations - including attempting to meet a 14-year-old girl.

The 57-year-old is also charged with two counts of possessing indecent images of children - four at the most serious level five and five at level one - in February last year.

Bolinger's bail conditions included a ban on using a computer other than at a public library.

He was questioned by Kent Police in February after the force received a tip-off from FBI officials involved in the cannibal plot trial of American policeman Gilberto Valle. 

The policeman was later convicted of plotting to kidnap, cook and eat women - including his own wife.
