The Jury's Out In A Former BBC Radio Norfolk Presenter's Child Sex Abuse Trial

The jury in the trial of a former BBC Radio Norfolk presenter accused of child sex offences has retired to consider its verdict.

Michael Souter is standing trial after pleading not guilty to a series of historic sex attacks on boys.

The 60-year-old, of Loddon, Norfolk, denies 19 sex offences, including indecent assault, indecency with a child, and serious sexual offences, against seven boys aged between 11 and 16.

The allegations date from between 1979 and 1999.

Souter, who was also involved in the Scouts and a social services youth mentoring scheme, also denies a further nine counts of making and possessing indecent images of under-18s.

Prosecutors have described him as a "sexual deviant'' who was obsessed with young boys in shorts and uniform.

Souter claims he is the victim of a conspiracy in which allegations against him were made up.
