New evidence in historic abuse inquiry

New evidence has temporarily put Jersey's historic abuse trial on hold.

The trial of Gordon Claude Wateridge was due to restart this morning with the questioning of the third victim who he is accused of assaulting. But new evidence has been introduced which needs to reviewed.

Yesterday the court heard the alleged victim was trying to stop his sister being indecently assaulted and was physically assaulted himself.

The defence counsel Advocate Mike Preston was due to start cross-examining the alleged victim today.

The case has been adjourned until tomorrow morning. Mr Wateridge denies the charges.
