Bill Cosby urged to apply waiver and allow court cases

The American comedian Bill Cosby has been urged to waive his rights under the statute of limitations, so the courts can hear new allegations of sexual assault.

Three women have gone public with claims that he groped and assaulted them.

However the alleged incidents happened more than 30 years ago - too long ago for the cases to come to trial.

Alastair Leithhead reports.
