Bill Roache Faces More Charges

Coronation Street actor Bill Roache has been charged with five indecent assaults dating back almost five decades, on four girls aged between 12 and 16.

The 81-year-old from Wilmslow, Cheshire, was arrested this morning after attending a police station in Lancashire by appointment.

A statement from Lancashire Constabulary said: "The offences are alleged to have been committed in the Manchester area between 1965 and 1968 and to involve four girls aged between 12 and 16 years at the time."

Roache was released on police bail to attend Preston Magistrates' Court on Friday.
