Jurors in the trial of Ilkeston born Coronation Street actor William Roache have been warned to leave their emotions aside when deciding a verdict.

The 81-year-old, who is on trial at Preston Crown Court, denies two counts of rape and four charges of sexual assaults against five girls between 1965 and 1971.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place in the toilets and dressing rooms at Granada Studios, Manchester, the actor’s car and his homes in Lancashire.
