A former councillor who is facing a string of sexual assault charges is expected to give his plea in court on September 1.

Paul Prescod, of Cynthia Court, Wootton, failed to appear at Luton Crown Court for the first hearing of his case on June 16 and his barrister said it was possible he had not realised the hearing was on that day.

The former Wootton councillor is charged with one offence of assault by penetration and three counts of sexual assault.
