The trial of a former mayor of Pembroke accused of historical rape and indecent assault will begin today (Monday).

David Boswell, aged 56, a Pembrokeshire County Councillor, has previously denied a single allegation of the rape of a girl aged under 13.

He also denied five allegations of indecently assaulting her, and two charges of indecently assaulting a different girl when she was aged under 16.

All the offences are alleged to have been committed between February 1991 and February 1994.

The trial is due to begin at Swansea Crown Court at 2pm and is estimated to last around five days.
