Cumbrian man denies sex assaults on schoolgirls

A 59-year-old man from Cleator Moor has gone on trial at Carlisle Crown Court accused of indecently assaulting two schoolgirls.

Michael White, of Trumpet Terrace, had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Five of the alleged offences are said to have been committed against the first girl from when she was aged 11, while the remaining allegations are said to have started when the second girl was aged seven.

The prosecution outlined its case against White, claiming the offences happened in Cleator Moor in the 1970s and 80s.

The trial continues.
