Mr Chapman, from Binniehill Road, Cumbernauld, was at the Old Bailey, in London, for a brief hearing, on Thursday, during which he spoke only to confirm his identity.

The former British Canoe Union chairman did not enter a plea to a single charge of fraud, and Judge Peter Rook QC set a trial date of November 11th, with the case expected to last four days.

Judge Peter Rook QC released Chapman on unconditional bail ahead of the trial, STV News reports.
