Coronation Street star William Roache is standing trial accused of committing historic sexual offences against five girls.

The 81-year-old veteran soap star was arrested at his home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, last May and later charged with two counts of raping a 15-year-old girl in Rossendale in 1967.

A month later he was additionally charged with five indecent assaults involving four girls aged 16 and under, allegedly committed in the Manchester area between 1965 and 1971.

Mr Roache denies all the allegations.

Paul Britton is at Preston Crown Court covering the proceedings.
