Priest and organist charged with sex offences

A Church of England priest and an organist have been charged with sexual offences they allegedly committed on young boys more than 20 years ago.

Father Keith Wilkie Denford, 77, is charged with three indecent assaults on a boy under 16 both in West Sussex, between June 1987 and January 1990. He is also accused of one indecent assault on another boy, aged under 16, in or near Cuckfield between January 1987 and December 1990.

Organist Michael Mytton, 68, has been charged with aiding and abetting Denford in the alleged Cuckfield assault on the first of the two boys.
