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.
