Man charged with assault on children at Keighley mosque

A man has been charged with 10 offences of common assault on children at a mosque in Keighley.

West Yorkshire Police said the 59-year-old, from Keighley, had been released on bail and was due to appear before Keighley Magistrates' Court on 2 June.

The charges follow the release of secret footage filmed at the Markazi Jamia Mosque, which was shown on Channel 4's Dispatches programme.

The footage included children apparently being hit by a teacher.
