A former Sithney parish councillor is due to appear before Truro Crown Court at the end of the month, to face charges of sexual assault on young girls.

Brian Deacon, aged 69, of Merther Close, Sithney, entered no plea when he appeared before the same court last Friday.

The six charges relate to the alleged sexual assault of girls aged eight and ten years at Helston between 2011 and 2013.

Deacon is a former chairman of Helston-based Sithney Cornish Wrestling Club. He no longer has anything to do with the club. He has also sat as a Sithney parish councillor in the past.
