Milkman on child sex abuse charge on Merseyside

A milkman on Merseyside has been charged with 59 counts of child sex abuse over a period of 30 years.

David Sparks from Wallasey, Wirral, is alleged to have committed the attacks between the 1960s and the 1990s.

The 60-year-old was arrested in March and bailed. After further inquiries, police said, he was charged at the beginning of July.

He is now on bail until 21 July when he will make his first appearance in court before Wirral Magistrates.
