A former councillor is due at Luton Crown Court today (Thursday) to face sexual assault charges.

Ex Bedford Borough councillor Paul Prescod, who did not stand for re-election earlier this month, is charged with three counts of sexual assault and two counts of assault by penetration.

The 49 year old, of Cynthia Court, Wooton, was originally arrested by police in August 2014 and was charged in April this year.
