A Murrow man has been acquitted of all 18 counts of indecent assault and indecency with a child.

His acquittal came at the end of a trial at Norwich Crown Court.

The jury brought in the not guilty verdicts following the trial of John Allan, 75, of Mill Road who had been alleged to have committed the offences at Hoveton near Wroxham in the 1970s.

His solicitor said: “The trial has concluded with Mr Allan being acquitted of all charges.”
