John Clack, 53, from Earlham Court in Norwich, has been accused of 14 offences, which allegedly happened during a period ranging from August 1997 to April 2004.

They included seven allegations of indecent assault, the first taking place between August 21 1997 and August 20 1999, involving a child between seven and eight years old.

The remaining six alleged indecent assaults took place between August 21 1999 and April 30, 2004, allegedly involving a girl aged between nine and 13.

He also faces five counts of indecency - four of which involve with a girl aged between nine and 13. The other involves a boy aged between eight and 10.

The remaining two charges are the attempted rape of a girl under 16 and causing or inciting a 14-year-old child to engage in sexual activity.

Mr Clack, who has denied all 14 charges, has had a trial date fixed for November 26.

He was bailed by Judge Peter Jacobs and warned to make sure he was there otherwise the trial would “simply go on without you”.
