Man charged with Stoke Mandeville sex offences

A 78-year-old man has been charged with rape and indecent assault in connection with incidents at several hospitals including Stoke Mandeville in the 1970s and 1980s.

Michael Salmon, from Wood Green in Hampshire, was arrested as part of the Metropolitan Police Service's Operation Yewtree which was set up following the Jimmy Savile allegations.

He was arrested today and later charged with one count of rape and four counts of indecent assault by Thames Valley Police.

The charges relate to incidents involving four victims between 1972 to 1985 at hospitals in the Aylesbury area.

Salmon will appear at Aylesbury Magistrates' Court on December 17.
