A pensioner will appear in court accused of committing child sexual offences dating back almost half a century.

Paul Johnson, of Mount Street in King's Lynn, was charged with 16 counts of indecent assault.

The charges brought by officers from Norfolk Constabulary's Child Abuse Invesigation Unit relate to abuse on four victims between 1969 and 1980.

The incidents allegedly took place when 87-yeear-old Johnson was working as a music teacher in London and Norfolk.

He was bailed to appear at King's Lynn Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
