An 83-year-old man has appeared in court charged with sex offences against children.

John Kendle of Lime Grove, Gayton, faces two counts of indecent assault, one against a boy and one against a girl.

He also faces two counts of gross indecency with a girl and one of inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity.

District Judge Cooper, sitting at King's Lynn magistrates court, heard the crown alleged the offences took place over a 16 year period.

Alison Muir, defending, said her client wished to plead not guilty to all of the charges.
