Date set for ex North Wales police chief child sex abuse trial.
A former North Wales police chief is to stand trial in the autumn charged with sexual offences on boys.
Gordon Anglesea, from Old Colwyn is accused of a range of offences including sexual assault and buggery.
The charges relate to the alleged abuse of boys in the 1970s and 1980s.
Anglesea, 78, retired as a superintendent with North Wales police in 1991.
He was arrested by officers from Operation Pallial – an independent investigation into past sexual abuse in the care system in the area – in December 2013.
The trial which is expected to take six weeks was due to take place at Mold Crown Court, but was moved to the Old Bailey following a hearing before trial judge Mrs Justice McGowan.
The defendant, who is on bail, was not required to attend today’s hearing at the Old Bailey.
