AMAN has gone on trial ac­cused of his­toric sex of­fences against two chil­dren.

Glyn Charles Lord, 53, de­nies in­de­cently as­sault­ing one girl in Mac­cles­field at sev­eral lo­ca­tions.

He also de­nies sex­u­ally as­sault­ing an­other girl twice on the same day around 10 years later.

Mr Lord, of Nixon Street, Mac­cles­field, is stand­ing trial at Ch­ester Crown Court.

The jury heard claims from one al­leged vic­tim that she was in­de­cently as­saulted on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions over a num­ber of years.

Paulin­ius Barnes, pros­e­cut­ing, said: “She de­scribes him as friendly and said she looked forward to see­ing him.”

Mr Barnes said: “He would get her to sit on his knee astride him. She only re­alised what was hap­pen­ing when she got older.

“On an­other oc­ca­sion he lay on top of her. At the time she felt squashed and said it hurt.

“On one oc­ca­sion Lord told her not to tell any­one be­cause no one would be­lieve her.

“She de­scribes one inci- dent when he was ag­gres­sive to­wards her when she re­fused to go with him.”

A sec­ond al­leged vic­tim claims Mr Lord sex­u­ally as­saulted her twice in one day.

Mr Barnes said: “He touched her and got on top of her. She didn’t like it and told her par­ents, who went to the po­lice.”

Kay Driver, de­fend­ing Mr Lord, said he de­nied all the claims.

The trial is be­ing heard by recorder, Eric Lamb.
