The Jury in a historic child sex abuse trial at Mold Crown Court has been sent out for a fourth day to consider their verdicts.

Seven men including Roy Norry from Connah’s Quay, a former BBC radio DJ and a founder member of Radio Deeside have been on trial since April charged with serious sexual offences.

The offences are alleged to have taken place against two boys aged under 16, between 1981 and 1986 at addresses in the Wrexham area.

The charges arise from the National Crime Agency’s Operation Pallial an investigation into allegations of historical abuse in the care system in North Wales.

Norry, aged 55, is charged with four counts of indecent assault, one count of buggery and one count of attempted buggery.

The other men who have been charged are:

Mark Granger, (aka Gary Cooke), aged 63, from Leicester. He is charged with three counts of indecent assault and two counts of buggery.

David Lightfoot, aged 71, from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, has been charged with three counts of indecent assault, one count of buggery and one count of attempted buggery.

Edward Huxley, aged 69, from Maidenhead, Berkshire, has been charged with two counts of indecent assault.

Keith Stokes, aged 61, from Farndon, Chester, has been charged with three counts of indecent assault, three counts of gross indecency, one count of buggery and one count of attempted buggery.

George Phoenix, 63, of Wrexham, is charged with one indecent assault
