An 81 year old man has been charged with historical child sex abuse against boys at a former cathedral school in Lincoln.

Roy Griffiths, from Dorset, is accused of eight offences.

The charges are six counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 14 and two counts of inciting a boy under the age of 14 to commit an act of gross indecency.

He has been bailed to appear at Lincoln District Magistrates Court on Thursday 8 June.

The charges come as part of Operation Redstone, an ongoing enquiry into allegations of abuse dating back to 1958 following a review of past safeguarding cases by the Diocese of Lincoln.
