Tremeloes stars face court accused of indecent assault


Two members of 1960s pop group The Tremeloes are due to appear in court accused of indecently assaulting a 15-year-old girl in the 1960s after a gig.

Leonard "Chip" Hawkes, 70, and Richard Westwood, 72, are expected to appear at Reading Crown Court on Friday.

The complainant claims she was assaulted in a hotel room in Chester after attending a pop concert in the city, some time between April 1 and April 30 1968.

Hawkes, of The Herons, Laleham Reach, Chertsey, and Westwood, of Ellis Road, Crowthorne, Berkshire, are due to stand trial on February 6 2017 charged with indecent assault.
